WMATA is keeping quiet about their plans if there is a federal government shutdown.
It is a relative unknown because during the 1995 shutdown, D.C. local government continued running, but it may not this time. Of course WMATA serves more than just D.C.
WMATA representatives about their plans. Director of Public Relations Lisa Farbstein said "We’ll let customers know in advance what to expect."
So the good news is we'll know what to expect before it happens, the bad news is that is all we know right now.
As we know more, you'll know more . . .
