WMATA Makes Late Change to SafeTrack Surge#14 – County Takes Steps to Bolster Service in Response
WMATA SafeTrack Surge #14 will run from April 15 through May 16, 2017, in two phases. During the first phase, from April 15 to April 29, WMATA Metrorail trains will not serve the College Park and Greenbelt Stations. During this phase, WMATA will run free shuttle buses between the Prince George’s Plaza and Greenbelt Metro Stations with an intermediate stop at the College Park Station.
During the second phase, from April 30 to May 14, WMATA will open the College Park Station while the Greenbelt Station remains closed, and run free shuttles between the College Park and Greenbelt Metro Stations. During both phases, Green Line service out of the work zone will function as normal, except Yellow Rush+ trains will not operate.
MARC and Amtrak trains will continue to serve the Greenbelt and College Park stations and operate as normal throughout the surge. However, any MARC or Amtrak passengers who would normally transfer to a WMATA Metrorail train at these stations will need to utilize the free shuttle buses provided by WMATA.
Prince George’s County TheBus System will offer supplemental service for residents during Surge #14. TheBus Route 15X (Greenbelt to New Carrollton) will double the frequency of service during peak periods from 40 minutes to 20 minutes from April 17 to May 16. The additional service is designed to help ease access to the Metro system for those potentially impacted by WMATA Surge #14.
