Metro Unveils Free Shuttle Bus Routes for Upcoming Orange Line Closures

People impacted by the Orange Line closures this summer will have the option to use free shuttle buses.

Beginning May 27, the Vienna, Dunn Loring and East Falls Church stations will be closed through Sept. 7 (Reminder: On March 15, some or all of the parking options will be closed at the Metro stations in the Falls Church and Vienna area.)

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) announced today (Friday) the routes for the free buses that will replace trains at the affected stations.

Riders can use an online tool to find recommended travel alternatives.

While the Silver Line won’t be closed, WMATA officials have said that the stations from McLean to Wiehle-Reston East will also be affected.

The summer work will include updating slip-resistant tiles, LED lighting, adding new large digital displays and building new shelters on the platforms.

“West Falls Church Station will remain open and serve as the western terminus of the Orange Line,” according to Metro. “Trains will continue to pass through East Falls Church Station while it is closed to minimize service impacts outside the construction area.”
