SafeTrack 14 to Impact Northern Green Line

Metro’s SafeTrack 14 surge will feature a two-week complete shutdown of the northern Green Line to shorten the project’s duration and lessen impacts to commuters.

Impacts

As part of the first phase of SafeTrack 14, buses will replace Metrorail trains between Greenbelt and Prince George’s Plaza stations from April 15 through April 29. Free shuttle buses will run between those two stations with an intermediate stop at College Park, Metro said Thursday. Green Line trains will run close to regular service elsewhere on the line, between Prince George’s Plaza and Branch Ave, every 6 to 8 minutes during rush hours.

The work zone will be shortened to between Greenbelt and College Park only during the second phase, which is scheduled from April 30 through May 14. Free shuttle buses will run between Greenbelt and College Park. Green Line trains will run close to regular service between College Park and Branch Avenue, every 6 to 8 minutes during rush hours.

Alternates

Park-and-ride commuteers who usually use the Greenbelt and College Park stations should consider New Carrollton (Orange Line), Prince George’s Plaza (Green Line) or Forest Glen (Red Line).
