Travelers can expect certain inconveniences throughout the SafeTrack Plan. However, Prince George’s residents should make special note of the following surge projects: June 18 - July 3 (16 Days): Line Segment Shutdown for Orange, Blue & Silver Lines Affecting Eastern Market to Minnesota Ave & Benning Road (293,000 peak trips will be impacted) November 12 - December 6 (25 Days): Continuous Single Track for Yellow & Green Lines Affecting Greenbelt to College Park The June 18 surge is a line segment shutdown between Eastern Market to Minnesota Avenue/Benning Road Metro Stations. WMATA will be providing Free Bus Shuttle service between Eastern Market and Minnesota/Benning Road with stops at Stadium-Armory and Potomac Avenue. Since the June 18 surge project will impact approximately 293,000 peak trips, we encourage residents to avoid using MetroRail and seek travel alternatives, including local bus, regional commuter service, and carpools and take advantage of flex time, alternative work schedules and teleworking, if available. If you must use the MetroRail system, then plan ahead to account for reduced train service and traveling on WMATA’s shuttles between the shutdown areas. WMATA is providing parallel local bus service enhancements on the 97, T18, X9 Routes during the line segment shutdown and advising patrons to consider existing Metrobus alternatives which bypass the shutdown area, such as the 96, X2, 30N, 30S, 32, 34, and 36. Residents have an option to board a MARC train from the Bowie State and New Carrollton stops on the Penn Line or Laurel, Muirkirk, Greenbelt, College Park and Riverdale stops on the Camden Line, which provide direct commuter service to Union Station in Washington, D.C.

Parking is available at Greenbelt and Branch Avenue Metrorail Stations. Visit the WMATA website for more information about parking capacity and rates at each respective station. http://www.wmata.com/rail/parking/ The November surge is a continuous single tracking phase from Greenbelt to College Park. During this phase rail service will be available but the wait times will be significantly longer. We suggest visiting our Rideshare website at http://www.ridesmartsolutions.com/ for alternate travel options during the June 18th surge and single tracking projects.
