Metrorail Experiencing Delays From Systemwide Network Error

Metrorail has returned to scheduled service after delays Wednesday morning due to a system-wide network error, according to a press release. 

Current arrival data on has also been restored.

However, the problem has not yet been “permanently resolved” and its cause remains unclear, said Metro. 

Around 7 a.m. Metro’s Rail Operations Control Center (ROCC) “identified an intermittent IT network connection issue that impacted communications between systems,” said Metro. However, Metro radio communication and closed-circuit television continued to operate.

Metro employees also soon discovered that online sources were providing inaccurate information to customers. Customers were then encouraged only to rely on in-station train schedules.

Metrorail experienced major delays throughout the morning.

Currently, Metrorail is running on-time or near on-time, but delays are still likely.
