Metrobus and Metrorail Service Changes Proposed in Alexandria

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is proposing changes to Metrorail and Metrobus service as part of its Fiscal Year 2018 budget. Please visit this link by 9:00 AM on Monday, February 6, 2017 to provide feedback on these proposed changes.

WMATA proposes adjusting rush hour and non-rush hour service on all rail lines. Proposed changes for the Yellow and Blue lines serving Alexandria would include:

  • A reduction in rush hour Yellow Line service from every 6 minutes to every 8 minutes
  • An increase in rush hour Blue Line service from every 12 minutes to every 8 minutes
  • A reduction in non-rush hour and weekend service from every 12 minutes to every 15 minutes

Two bus routes with stops in Alexandria would be affected by the proposed budget. The proposal would eliminate the 7X (Lincolnia – Pentagon) and 28X (Leesburg Pike Limited) routes.

The proposed fare adjustments include increasing the Metrorail rush hour fare up to $0.10 and the Metrorail non-rush hour fare up to $0.25. Regular and express Metrobus fares would increase by $0.25.
