Vern Express and 4Ride Impacts: Saturday August 11 & Sunday, August 12

Vern Express

The Vern Express will run on an 30 minute schedule all day Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12 (7am - 11pm). The shuttle stops or additional shuttle disruptions are possible as the university and MPD respond to the Unite the Right 2 rally occurring at Lafayette Park, several blocks from the Foggy Bottom Campus.  Additionally, during this period the shuttle stop at the Red Cross is suspended. Please download the Transloc Rider App or view our Transloc Web Portal for real time updates. 

 

4Ride

Delays may occur over the weekend starting Friday night, August 11 and lasting through Monday, Morning August 13 due to road closures in and around Foggy Bottom. Delays will be hard to anticipate and will have a lot to do with the location of the pick-up and drop-off points in relations to the street accessibility. We thank you advance for your patients. 

Metro Impacts August 11 - 26

For 16 consecutive days (including 10 commuting days) when ridership is lighter in August, Metro will conduct around the clock construction on a segment of the Orange, Blue and Silver lines resulting in limited capacity, crowding and delays.

 

Due to single tracking between McPherson Square and Smithsonian, Orange and Silver line trains will operate every 20 minutes at all times of the day resulting in extensive delays and crowding. Blue Line trains will operate between Franconia-Springfield and Arlington Cemetery; additional Yellow Line trains will provide service during rush hour between Franconia-Springfield and Greenbelt. Customers traveling between Virginia and Downtown DC should use the Yellow Line instead.

 

On the weekends of August 11-12 and 25-26, Farragut West, McPherson Square, and the lower level platform at Metro Center (Orange, Silver & Blue lines) will be closed.
