TIPS FOR USING TRANSIT DURING SAFETRACK MARCH 4 - APRIL 12, 2017
WMATA’s SafeTrack work will focus on the Blue and Yellow Lines from March 4 through April 12, 2017. Single tracking between Braddock Road and Huntington will result in significantly reduced train frequencies.
During this SafeTrack surge, PRTC will implement a few minor changes to assist passengers. Please allow for additional travel time. Visit Metro’s SafeTrack webpage for details. Contact PRTC Customer Service at 703-730-6664 or Omni@OmniRide.com for assistance in planning your trip.
These accommodations will be in place only during this phase of SafeTrack:
- On the Prince William Metro Direct route:
- The trip that normally goes out of service at Franconia-Springfield at 9 a.m. weekdays will operate to the PRTC Transit Center, departing the Metro station at 9 a.m.
- The 7:45 p.m. weekday trip will depart the Franconia-Springfield Metro Station at 7:55 p.m.
- The 10:40 p.m. weekday trip – the last trip of the night – will depart the Metro station at 10:55 p.m.
- The 10:35 p.m. Saturday trip – the last trip of the night – will depart the Metro station at 10:50 p.m.
- Prince William County residents may want to ride one of the many PRTC OmniRide buses to the Pentagon, Crystal City or Rosslyn-Ballston and transfer to Metrobus, Arlington Transit bus or Alexandria DASH bus.
- Those who travel mid-day should consider PRTC’s Dale City – Washington OmniRide MX-1 trip, which leaves PRTC at 10:53 a.m. and picks up passengers at the Route 123/ I-95 Commuter Lot before traveling straight to multiple destinations in downtown D.C.
- Passengers who use Metro to travel to Alexandria or South Arlington may want to consider these options:
Note: Potomac Mills Mall has temporarily increased the number of spaces set aside for commuter parking to assist commuters during SafeTrack.
