Mayor Bowser to Brief the Public on District’s Response to WMATA’s Safe Track Plan

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

(Washington, DC) – Tomorrow at 12 pm., Mayor Muriel Bowser, WMATA Acting Chief Operating Officer Jack Requa, and District officials will host a press conference to discuss the District’s plan to mitigate impacts to residents, businesses and tourists during the implementation of WMATA’s Safe Track Plan. 

Safe Track is an accelerated track work plan to address safety recommendations and rehabilitate the Metrorail system to improve safety and reliability.  Due to reduced capacity and expected longer travel times, Metrorail riders are encouraged to consider using alternate travel options while safety surge work is scheduled on their line.  During line segment shutdowns, limited shuttle bus service will replace trains between the shutdown zones.
