As a thank you to riders patience during the closure, passengers on the Metro SubwayLink will ride free of charge through Sunday.
“Safety will always be our first priority,” said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn. “The decision to reopen the Metro SubwayLink system came after a thorough inspection of our tracks to ensure their safety and reliability. We are pleased to restore service to our riders earlier than originally planned and appreciate their patience during this time.”
There is still scheduled work to begin in Summer 2018.
