Single-tracking between Takoma and Silver Spring
Red Line trains will run between Shady Grove and NoMa-Gallaudet every 6 minutes during the AM/PM rush. Passengers traveling to stations north of NoMa-Gallaudet must transfer to continue their trip. (Similar to Rush Plus Yellow Line trains at Mount Vernon Square Station)
Red Line trains will run between Glenmont and Grosvenor every 12 minutes. Customers traveling to stations north of Grosvenor must transfer to continue their trip.
After 10pm trains will run between Shady Grove and Glenmont every 15 minutes.
