How to Get Around Town While the Metro is Closed

Metro rail service will close from midnight on Wednesday, March 16 until 5 a.m. on Thursday, March 17.

After an electrical fire involving a cable in the tunnel outside McPherson Square Station on Monday morning, workers will inspect nearly 600 jumper cables in tunnels throughout the system, officials said. For those of you who have to commute into Washington, D.C. or around town, MyMCMedia put together a list of alternative transportation methods for your commute.

Metro will operate bus service throughout the region and Ride On will add more buses for customers.

Capital Bikeshare has bike stations throughout Montgomery County and Washington, D.C.

Car sharing services such as Car2Go and Zipcar are helpful for getting around.

In addition to car sharing and bike sharing programs, Uber, Lyft and local taxi companies may be a great way to get to work. You can download the apps from the App Store or on Google Play.
