Monday is President’s Day, so you can expect some changes to transit service around the Washington, D.C. region.

President’s Day is a Federal holiday, so most government workers will have the day off. (Light traffic, yay!) Many businesses, however, will remain open. It’s also worth noting that there will be a sizable celebration of George Washington’s birthday at Mount Vernon all of next week.

If you are planning to move around the region via train or bus, be prepared for the following schedule adjustments.


  • Trains will follow the Saturday schedule, with 6-15 minute service intervals during the day.
  • Off-peak fares will be in effect.
  • Metrobus will follow a Saturday supplemental schedule and there will be limited trips after midnight.
