ATP Takeaway: Surge 12 starts February 11, with full line segment shutdown on the Blue Line. Your best options include ART 42, ART 43 or Capital Bikeshare.

Hope you enjoyed the break, but SafeTrack in Arlington is back starting February 11 through 28. Surge 12 is a full line segment shutdown on the Blue Line between Rosslyn and Pentagon Metro Stations. Since there are no Blue Line trains running, Yellow Rush+ will serve Franconia-Springfield and Van Dorn Stations all day. 

Surge Details

  • No trains between Rosslyn and Pentagon
  • Arlington Cemetery Station closed
  • Orange, Silver and Yellow Line service will operate normally
  • Yellow Line Rush+ will run all day between Franconia-Springfield and Mt Vernon Sq
  • Free shuttle buses will operate between Arlington Cemetery & Pentagon. This bus is not designed for rush hour commuters, but rather to support those visiting the cemetery.

Visit our dedicated SafeTrack page for all surge details.
