Keeping You Informed

The coronavirus has halted business and everyday life across the world. Whether your employees are essential workers or teleworking from home, Commute66 has you covered. We are available for you at this time and can set up virtual meetings to create and enhance customized telework solutions for your employees, and support essential travel on public transportation. 

Transit options for essential employees: 

Public transportation service in the DC metro area is changing at a rapid pace as new regulations on social distancing are being released. The general public should stay at home and only venture outside for essential trips.

Transit systems in the area are encouraging the public to either walk or use another form of transportation for essential trips if possible, but to otherwise practice social distancing. See below for how the transit systems that service the I-66 corridor are changing:

Metrorail and Metrobus service

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Metro is intended for essential travel only. This includes medical providers, hospital staff, first responders, critical government functions, and individuals involved in helping the community. 

Service Update 04/06/2020:

Beginning on Monday, April 6, Metrorail and Metrobus will be altering their service hours.

  • Metrorail will end service with station closures at 9:00 p.m.
  • Metrobus will end last trips beginning near 11:00 p.m.

These end of service hours will continue 7-days per week until further notice. Read WMATA's annoucnement here.

Service update 3/30/2020:

WMATA will operate 8-car Metrorail trains to encourage social distancing for riders using the system for essential travel.

Starting March 30, the first and last cars will be closed and passengers can board from any of the center cars. This is to limit the operator's exposure to passengers as heightened precaution. Find more information here.

Service update 3/27/2020:

This weekend, WMATA will be operating Metrorail trains every 30 minutes to the stations that are open for essential travel.

To preserve the health and safety of employees and customers and to conserve critical supplies, Metro is closing 19 stations including Greensboro and McLean Stations on the Silver Line, and East Falls Church on the Orange Line. See the full list here.

Metrobus service is also reduced to 26 routes. See here for the full list of Metrobuses in operation this weekend for essential travel only.

Fairfax Connector is still running on a normal schedule. Fare collection is temporarily suspended and riders are required to enter and exit the bus using the rear doors. This does not apply to riders who need to use a wheelchair ramp. Stay up to date on Fairfax Connector status here.

OmniRide has changed services to some of the Express Commuter bus routes due to COVID-19. See here for the full list of updates.

No changes are anticipated for OmniRide Metro Express, OmniRide Local, or Omniride Access paratransit services.
