Metro recently closed several stations on the Blue and Yellow lines south of Ronald Reagan National Airport for platform reconstruction that will last until September.
The temporary shutdown is a part of Metro’s plan to reconstruct its 20 outdoor concrete platforms.
Ahead of the closures, Metro got the word out about Metrobuses, free shuttles and other bus options — like the Fairfax Connector — for affected riders. (The 494 Fairfax Connector runs from Lorton to Tysons, passing through Springfield.)
Tysons Partnership has information about carpools and vanpools, which travel for free in express lanes.
From social media and news reports, the transition has caused commuting headaches for some people — from getting stuck in traffic to bus drivers getting lost to stranded riders. Others have reported few or no issues with alternative transportation.
Let us know below if the Metro shutdown will affect you during the summer.
