Continuing their established tradition of advance notice, WMATA has just put out a press release detailing the times and locations of the shuttles they’ll be running for people impacted by this weekend’s station closings.
In case you’ve forgotten (or are the board and have not been informed), closings start tonight at 9:30pm and close Pentagon City, Crystal City and Reagan National Airport metro stations. If you’re going there or are going to try to make it anywhere on the blue or yellow line south of the airport you’re going to want to check this out and verify where and when to grab the shuttles at each particular station.
In a nutshell: if you’re headed down to the southern segment you’ll get off at the Pentagon station. From there you can grab one of four shuttles proceeding to the following destinations:
- Braddock Road station
- Franconia Springfield station
- Reagan National Airport station
- Pentagon City station & Crystal City station
If you’re coming from the south it’s a toss-up whether you’re better off going to Franconia or Braddock. If WMATA sticks with their promised every 10-15 minutes for departures during the day that could very well be less of a wait than you sometimes get between trains on the weekend.
