Metro announced expanded service for July 4
July 4th is quickly approaching, and our neighborhood will undoubtedly be inundated with visitors.
To facilitate moving about on this busy day, Metro has announced that they will operate from 7:00 a.m. until midnight, with "near rush-hour service levels" from 6:00 p.m. until midnight. The fireworks show on the mall is at 9:10 p.m.
The Smithsonian Station will be closed most of the day on July 4th. That means the crowds are more likely to be pushed to our neighborhood stations, particularly for the fireworks on the mall. However, Smithsonian will re-open at the conclusion of the fireworks show.
Metro expect to provide more than 500,000 rail trips on July 4th.
