The Washington area’s Metro subway and bus system will reopen at 2 p.m. after making it through the deadly superstorm that’s bringing destruction to the East Coast.
Metro announced Tuesday morning that once the system reopens, trains and buses will operate less frequently than usual for a weekday. They’ll run at what Metro calls “Sunday service intervals.”
Metro plans to resume normal service for the Wednesday morning commute.
Spokesman Dan Stessel says it appears the transit system weathered the storm well. He says there was some water infiltration but no significant flooding and few downed trees.
