Metro expands bus service, reopens 15 stations that were closed to due COVID-19 pandemic

Metro has expanded its bus service and reopened 15 stations that were previously closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of Sunday, June 28, Arlington Cemetery is the only Metro train station that remains closed, and that's because the cemetery is still closed to the general public.

The reopening affects the following stations:

Federal Center SW
Federal Triangle
Mt Vernon Sq
Judiciary Sq
Archives
Smithsonian
Greensboro
Eisenhower Ave
Virginia Sq
East Falls Church
McLean
Van Dorn St
Clarendon
Cleveland Park
Grosvenor-Strathmore
Cheverly
College Park
Morgan Blvd
The bolded stations above (Greensboro, East Falls Church, and McLean) are reopening with shuttle bus service only because their platforms are currently under reconstruction.

Rear door boarding will continue until further notice and riders and employees are still required to wear face masks, according to Metro.

In addition to the station reopenings, more entrances will reopen at the following stations:

Anacostia
Farragut North
Dupont Circle
Metro Center
Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport
U Street
Gallery Place-Chinatown
Friendship Heights
L’Enfant Plaza

{snip a whole bunch of stuff about bus routes. It's important if you ride one of those lines.}
