From WMATA:

Metrobus

Metrobus will begin service on a “moderate” weather service plan on Wednesday. Under the moderate service plan, Metrobus service will be available on 160 regional commuter routes. Additionally, Metro will run the 32 Metrobus school trips to the extent possible, given road conditions.

Bus riders are advised that even on routes where service is operating, delays and detours are possible due to road conditions. More information on how buses operate under a moderate snow plan

Additional bus routes will be restored when it is safe to do so. Metro continues to encourage riders to sign up for MetroAlerts  to receive email or text-message updates for their specific routes.

Metrorail

The Metrorail system will open at 5 a.m. on the Red, Orange, Blue, Green and Yellow lines.  It is not yet known whether service can be restored on the Silver Line in time for morning rush hour due to ongoing ice and snow clearing efforts.  In the event that rail service is not restored on the Silver Line, free shuttle buses will be provided starting at 5 a.m. between all Silver Line stations and West Falls Church, where connections can be made to the Orange Line.

Metrorail service will operate on a modified weekday service with trains running every 8 minutes on each line. Stations that are served by multiple lines will see more frequent service.

MetroAccess

MetroAccess service was restored today and will be available tomorrow; however, some locations may be unavailable for door-to-door service. Delays and service impacts are possible due to road conditions.

The MetroAccess telephone call center will be open regular operating hours to assist customers with scheduling reservations.”
