Northeast End of Green Line Closes Memorial Day Weekend

Four Green Line Stations will be closed starting Friday night.

Beginning Friday at 10 p.m., Metro's website states there will be no Green Line trains between Greenbelt and Fort Totten in either direction. This condition will continue over the weekend and throughout Memorial Day on Monday, while Metro installs new switches.

Four stations will be closed during this time:

  • Greenbelt
  • College Park
  • Prince George's Plaza
  • West Hyattsville

Although busses will replace trains between Greenbelt and Fort Totten, Metro recommends that customers who normally drive and park at Greenbelt—consider using New Carrollton Station on the Orange Line as an alternate.

Shuttle bus service will operate on two routes, according to Metro. They are:

Local service between all the closed stations between Greenbelt and Fort Totten. Metro recommends that customers using local shuttle bus service add up to 50 minutes to their travel time.

Express service between Greenbelt and Fort Totten stations only—this does not include intermediate stops. Metro recommends that customers using express shuttle bus service add about 30 minutes to their travel time.

Due to the Green Line track work, Metro has announced that Yellow Line trains will operate between Mt. Vernon Square and Huntington only.

See Metro's website for further details and to get the times for the last trains departing on Friday night.
