Metro Not Going Anywhere During a Shutdown
Metrorail and Metrobus services would run as normal during a federal government shutdown, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority has announced. According to an advisory, if a shutdown lasts several days and results in significantly lower ridership, the agency, which is not federally operated, may make adjustments to "right size" capacity.
If Congress doesn't make a budget agreement today, a government shutdown would go into effect tomorrow, Oct. 1.
