Rush Hour+ DC Metro Rush Hour Relief
DC Metro's WMATA wants to make your rush hour less stressful and time-intensive. Their new Rush+ program is designed to serve a larger group of riders on the Green, Yellow and Blue lines and reduce crowding with six additional trains every hour during rush hour and more frequent service. It will also provide new transfer-free travel opportunities. Rush+ hits 21 stations on June 18, 2012, offering DC Metro rush hour relief.
During peak periods, more than 46,000 Orange Line customers will benefit from six additional trains per hour – three in each direction – between Vienna and Largo Town Center. This will result in 18 percent more capacity on the line, or approximately 2,600 seats per hour.
- For 33,500 Blue and Yellow Line customers in Virginia, Rush+ will increase the share of Yellow Line trains, meaning more direct and faster access to downtown via the Yellow Line bridge. A smaller number (about 16,000) weekday peak-period customers who travel on Blue Line trains via Arlington Cemetery will experience a maximum of six-minutes additional waiting time for a train.
- Stations of the Green and Yellow lines from L'Enfant Plaza to Greenbelt will benefit from 18 additional trains during rush hour periods (six additional trains each peak hour, three in each direction). And for the first time, you will be able to travel from Greenbelt to Franconia-Springfield without transferring. More than 28,000 customers will benefit from the change.
