The Washington Post reported yesterday:

“Metro board members who represent the District will move this week to restore late-night service beginning in July, bringing back 3 a.m. closings for the first time in three years.”

Ed. Note: reduced hours went into effect June 25th 2017 so if this goes through, God willing, it would be for the first time in two years. Or am I missing something? Anyway let’s all send our thoughts and prayers to make sure this happens.

The Post continues:

The measure up for consideration Thursday

is tied to a preventive maintenance update being presented to the board’s safety and operations committee. Without the reauthorization, Metro’s hours are set to automatically revert to the system’s old schedule beginning July 1: 5 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday; 5 a.m. to 3 a.m. Fridays; 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. Saturdays; and 7 a.m. to midnight Sundays. Metro is pushing to maintain 11:30 p.m. weeknight and 1 a.m. weekend closings, along with Sunday hours of 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.”
