Heat Advisories Can Affect MetroRail Service

As a safety precaution during the hot summer months, MetroRail trains may operate at lower speeds between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. in the event of sustained high temperatures.

As a result, trains might be later than scheduled trips. This preventative measure could be implemented on an as-needed basis throughout the summer. Please sign up for MetroAlerts to be sure to learn if your train is expected to be more than 5 minutes late.
