Of tracks 2 ( 1,429 mm) 225 feet (68.6 m) 750 System map of the whole system including extension under construction and the approved () which will be operationally separate from Metro The Washington Metro, known colloquially as Metro and branded Metrorail, is the heavy rail system serving the in the United States. It is administered by the (WMATA), which also operates service under the Metro name. Besides the District of Columbia, Metro serves several jurisdictions in the states of and. In Maryland, Metro provides service to and counties; in Virginia, to and counties and the independent city of. Combined with its ridership in the independent Virginia cities of and, the Metro service area is largely coextensive with the inner ring of the Washington metropolitan area. The system is to reach and. It operates mostly as a in the District itself, while most of the suburban tracks are at surface level.
Opened in 1976, the network now includes six lines, 91 stations, and 117 miles (188 km) of. Due to subway track depths, Metro's has the longest, single-tier escalator in the Western Hemisphere, spanning 230 feet (70 m). Metro is the rapid transit system in the United States in number of passenger trips, after the and. There were 215.3 million trips on Metro in fiscal year 2015, or 712,843 trips per weekday. In June 2008, Metro set a monthly ridership record with 19,729,641 trips, or 798,456 per weekday. Fares vary based on the distance traveled, the time of day, and the type of card used by the passenger. Riders enter and exit the system using a called.
Metro under construction at the Navy Yard in 1989 During the 1960s plans were laid for a massive freeway system in Washington., who chaired the, thought that a rail transit system would never be self-sufficient because of low density land uses and general transit ridership decline. But the plan met, and was altered to include a system plus rail line radials. The Beltway received full funding; funding for the ambitious Inner Loop Freeway system was partially reallocated toward construction of the Metro system. In 1960 the federal government created the National Capital Transportation Agency to develop a rapid rail system. In 1966, a bill creating WMATA was passed by the federal government, the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland, with planning power for the system being transferred to it from the NCTA. Interior of a rehabilitated Breda car WMATA approved plans for a 98-mile (158 km) regional system in 1968.
Construction began after a groundbreaking ceremony on December 9, 1969, when Secretary of Transportation, District Mayor, and Maryland Governor tossed the first spade of dirt at Judiciary Square. The first portion of the system opened March 27, 1976, with 4.6 miles (7.4 km) available on the Red Line with five stations from Rhode Island Avenue to Farragut North, all in the District of Columbia.
Arlington County, Virginia was linked to the system on July 1, 1977; Montgomery County, Maryland, on February 6, 1978; Prince George's County, Maryland, on November 20, 1978; and Fairfax County, Virginia, and Alexandria, Virginia, on December 17, 1983. Underground stations were built with cathedral-like arches of concrete, highlighted by soft, indirect lighting. The name Metro was suggested by, who designed the subway maps for the. The 103-mile (166 km), 83-station system was completed with the opening of the Green Line segment to Branch Avenue on January 13, 2001. This did not mean the end of the growth of the system: a 3.22-mile (5.18 km) extension of the Blue Line to and opened on December 18, 2004. The first, (at the time called the New York Ave–Florida Ave–Gallaudet University station) on the Red Line between and, opened November 20, 2004. Construction began in March 2009 for an extension to to be built in two phases.
The first phase, five stations connecting East Falls Church to Tysons Corner and Wiehle Avenue in Reston, opened on July 26, 2014. Metro construction required billions of federal dollars, originally provided by Congress under the authority of the National Capital Transportation Act of 1969.
The cost was paid with 67% federal money and 33% local money. This act was amended on January 3, 1980 by the National Capital Transportation Amendment of 1979 (also known as the Stark-Harris Act), which authorized additional funding of $1.7 billion to permit the completion of 89.5 miles (144.0 km) of the system as provided under the terms of a full funding grant agreement executed with WMATA in July 1986, which required 20% to be paid from local funds. On November 15, 1990, the National Capital Transportation Amendments of 1990 authorized an additional $1.3 billion in federal funds for construction of the remaining 13.5 miles (21.7 km) of the 103-mile (166 km) system, completed via the execution of full funding grant agreements, with a 63% federal/37% local matching. The highest ridership for a single day was on the day of the, January 20, 2009, with 1,120,000 riders. It broke the previous record, set the day before, of 866,681 riders. June 2008 set several ridership records: the single-month ridership record of 19,729,641 total riders, the record for highest average weekday ridership with 1,044,400 weekday trips, had five of the ten highest ridership days, and had 12 weekdays in which ridership exceed 800,000 trips. In February 2006 Metro officials chose Randi Miller, a car dealership employee from, to record new 'doors opening', 'doors closing', and 'please stand clear of the doors, thank you' announcements after winning an open contest to replace the messages recorded by Sandy Carroll in 1996.
The 'Doors Closing' contest attracted 1,259 contestants from across the country. On October 30, 2010, the crowd at the broke a 19-year record in Saturday ridership, with 825,437 trips. The previous record had been set on June 8, 1991 at 786,358 trips during the Desert Storm rally.
Since opening in 1976, the Metro network has grown to include six lines, 91 stations, and 118 miles (190 km) of route. The rail network is designed according to a, with rail lines running between downtown Washington and its nearby suburbs.
The system makes extensive use of interlining – running more than one service on the same track. There are six operating lines.
The system's official map was designed by noted graphic designer and Bill Cannan while they were partners in the design firm of Wyman & Cannan in New York City. About 50 miles (80 km) of Metro's track is underground, as are 47 of the 91 stations. Track runs underground mostly within the District and high-density suburbs.
Surface track accounts for about 46 miles (74 km) of the total, and aerial track makes up 9 miles (14 km). The system operates on a unique of ( 1,429 mm). This is 1/4 of an inch narrower than 4 ft 8 1⁄ 2 in ( 1,435 mm). [ ] In an effort to gain revenues, WMATA has started to allow retail ventures in Metro stations.
WMATA has authorized DVD-rental vending machines and ticket booths for the Old Town Trolley Tours and is seeking additional retail tenants. Washington Metro lines Line Name Opened Stations Distance Termini mi km Western/Southern Eastern/Northern 1976 27 31.9 51.3 1977 27 30.3 48.8 1978 26 26.4 42.5 1983 17 15.07 24.25 (Rush+) (rush hours) (Rush+) (other times) 1991 21 23.04 28 29.6 47.6 (opens 2020) Financing [ ] Metro relies extensively on passenger fares and appropriated financing from the Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C. Governments, which are represented on Metro's board of directors. The system does not have a dedicated revenue stream as other cities' mass transit systems do. Critics allege that this has contributed to Metro's recent history of maintenance and safety problems.
For Fiscal Year 2015, the estimated (fare revenue divided by operating expenses) was 66 percent, based on the WMATA approved budget. Infrastructure [ ] Stations [ ]. Main article: There are 40 stations in the District of Columbia, 15 in Prince George's County, 11 in Montgomery County, 11 in Arlington County, 11 in Fairfax County, and three in the City of Alexandria. The second phase of the will add 6 new stations—three more in Fairfax County and three in —in 2019 or 2020.
At 196 feet (60 m) below the surface, the station on the Red Line is the deepest in the system. There are no escalators; high-speed elevators take 20 seconds to travel from the street to the station platform.
The station, one stop to the north of the Forest Glen station, has the longest continuous escalator in the USA and in the, at 230 feet (70 m). The station is the deepest station on the Orange/Blue Line, at 117 feet (36 m) below street level. The station features the second-longest continuous escalator in the Metro system at 194 feet (59 m); an escalator ride between the street level and the mezzanine level takes nearly two minutes. The system is not centered on any single station, but is at the intersection of the Red, Orange, Blue, and Silver Lines.
The station is also the location of WMATA's main sales office. Metro has designated five other 'core stations' that have high passenger volume, including:, transfer station for the Red, Green and Yellow Lines;, transfer station for the Orange, Blue, Silver, Green and Yellow Lines;, the busiest station by passenger boardings;; and. In order to deal with the high number of passengers in transfer stations, Metro is studying the possibility of building pedestrian connections between nearby core transfer stations. For example, a 750-foot (230 m) passage between Metro Center and Gallery Place stations would allow passengers to transfer between the Orange/Blue/Silver and Yellow/Green Lines without going one stop on the Red Line. Another tunnel between Farragut West and Farragut North stations would allow transfers between the Red and Orange/Blue/Silver lines, decreasing transfer demand at Metro Center by an estimated 11%.
The Farragut pedestrian tunnel has yet to be physically implemented, but was added in virtual form effective October 28, 2011. The SmarTrip system now interprets an exit from one Farragut station and entrance to the other as part of a single trip, allowing card holders to transfer on foot without having to pay a second full fare. Rolling stock [ ]. Train of Rohr cars arriving at the Metro’s fleet consists of 1,126 rail cars, each 75 feet (22.86 m) long. Trains have a maximum speed of 75 mph (121 km/h), and average 33 mph (53 km/h), including stops.
Operating rules presently limit their top speed to 59 mph (95 km/h). All cars operate as (consecutively numbered even-odd with a cab at each end of the pair except 7000 series railcars), with systems shared across the pair. Metro currently operates 850 cars during rush hours. There are 814 cars in active service, four cars have been permanently removed from revenue service for use as the ', and the remaining 36 cars compose gap trains to serve as backup should a train experience problems.

The 5000 series CAF trains are expected to be retired in 2019 because of poor quality and unreliability. [ ] Metro's rolling stock was acquired in six phases, and each version of car is identified with a separate series number. The original order of 300 rail cars (all of which have been retired as of 1 July 2017 ) was manufactured by, with final delivery in 1978. These cars are numbered 1000–1299 and were rehabilitated in the mid-1990s. Breda Costruzioni Ferroviarie (Breda), now, manufactured the second order of 76 cars delivered in 1983 and 1984. These cars, numbered 2000–2075, were rehabilitated in the early 2000s by in.
A third order of 288 cars, also from Breda, were delivered between 1984 and 1988. These cars are numbered 3000–3291 and were rehabilitated by Alstom in the early 2000s. An order of 100 cars from Breda, numbered 4000–4099, were delivered between 1992 and 1994. A fifth order of 192 cars was manufactured by (CAF) of Spain.
These cars are numbered 5000–5191 and were delivered from 2001 through 2004. A sixth order of 184 cars from Alstom Transportation, are numbered 6000-6183 and were delivered between 2005 and 2007. The cars have body shells built in with assembly completed in Hornell, New York. The 7000 series of cars, currently being built by of Kobe, Japan are being delivered for on-site testing during winter 2013, and first entered service April 14, 2015 on the Blue Line.
The new cars are different from previous models in that while still operating as married pairs, the cab in one car was eliminated, turning it into a B car. The new design allows for increased passenger capacity, elimination of redundant equipment, greater energy efficiency, and lower maintenance costs. The investigation of the fatal June 22, 2009, accident led it to conclude that the 1000 series cars are unsafe and unable to protect passengers in a crash. As a result, on July 26, 2010, Metro voted to purchase 300 7000 series cars to replace the remaining 1000 series cars.
An additional 128 7000 series cars were also ordered to serve the new Silver Line to Dulles Airport (64 for each phase). In May 2013, Metro placed another order for 100 7000 series cars, which will replace all of the 4000 series cars. On July 13, 2015, WMATA used their final option and purchased an additional 220 7000 series railcars for fleet expansion, bringing the total number of 7000 series railcars on order to 748. Signaling and operation [ ].
Main article: During normal passenger operation on revenue tracks, trains are designed to be controlled by an integrated (ATO) and (ATC) system that accelerates and brakes trains automatically without operator intervention. All trains are still manned with train operators who open and close the doors, make station announcements, and supervise their trains. The system was designed so that an operator could manually operate a train when necessary.
Since June 2009, when and killed nine people due in part to malfunctions in the ATC system, all Metro trains have been manually operated. The current state of manual operation has led to heavily degraded service, with new manual requirements such as absolute blocks, speed restrictions, and end-of-platform stopping leading to increased headways between trains, increased dwell time, and worse on-time performance. Metro originally planned to have all trains be automated again by 2017, but those plans were shelved in early 2017 in order to focus on more pressing safety and infrastructure issues. The train doors were originally designed to be opened and closed automatically and the doors would re-open if an object blocked them, much as elevator doors do. Almost immediately after the system opened in 1976 Metro realized these features were not conducive to safe or efficient operation and they were disabled. At present the doors may be opened automatically or manually. If a door tries to close and it meets an obstruction, the operator must re-open the door.
Hours and headways [ ] Metrorail begins service at 5 am Monday through Friday, 7 am on Saturdays, and 8 am Sundays; it ends service at 11:30 pm Monday through Thursday, 1:00 am Friday and Saturday, and 11:00 pm on Sundays, although the last trains leave the end stations inbound about half an hour before these times. [ ] Trains run more frequently during rush hours on all lines, with scheduled peak hour headways of 4 minutes on the Red Line and 9 minutes on all other lines. Headways are much longer during midday and evening on weekdays and all weekend. The midday six-minute headways are based on a combination of two Metrorail lines (Orange/Blue and Yellow/Green) as each route can run every 12 minutes; in the case of the Red Line, every other train bound for Glenmont terminates at Silver Spring instead. Night and weekend service varies between 8 and 24 minutes, with trains generally scheduled only every 20 minutes. Other service truncations also occur in the system during rush hour service only. On the Red Line, every other train bound for Shady Grove terminates at, in addition to the alternating terminations at Silver Spring mentioned above.
For the Yellow Line, all trains bound for terminate. These are primarily instituted due to a limited supply of rail cars and the locations of throughout the system. Until 1999, Metro ended service at midnight every night, and weekend service began at 8 am.
That year, WMATA began late night service on Fridays and Saturdays until 1 am. By 2007, with encouragement from businesses, that closing time had been pushed back to 3 am, with peak fares in effect for entries after midnight. There were plans floated to end late night service due to costs in 2011, but they were met with resistance by riders. WMATA temporarily discontinued late night rail service on May 30, 2016, so that Metro can conduct an extensive track rehabilitation program in an effort to improve the system's reliability. On June 25, 2017, Metro changed its hours of operation with closing at 11:30 PM Monday–Thursday, 1 AM on Friday and Saturday, and 11 PM on Sunday, with the last trains leaving the end stations inbound about half an hour before these times. Special service patterns [ ] Metro runs special service patterns on holidays and when events in Washington may require additional service. Activities require Metro to adjust service to provide extra capacity to and from the.
WMATA makes similar adjustments during other events, such as. Metro has altered service and used some stations as entrances or exits only to help manage congestion. Rush Plus [ ] In 2012, WMATA announced enhanced rush period service that was implemented on June 18, 2012, under the name “Rush+” (or “Rush Plus”). Rush Plus service occurred only during portions of peak service: 6:30–9:00 AM and 3:30–6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The Rush+ realignment was intended to free up space in the Rosslyn Portal (the tunnel between Rosslyn and Foggy Bottom), which operates at full capacity already.
When Silver Line service began, those trains would be routed through the tunnel, and so some of what were Blue Line trains to were now diverted across the to become Yellow Line trains running all the way up the Green Line to. Select Yellow Line trains running south diverted along the Blue Line to (as opposed to the normal Yellow line terminus at ). Until the start of Silver Line service, excess Rosslyn Tunnel capacity was used by additional Orange Line trains that traveled along the Blue Line to Largo (as opposed to the normal Orange Line terminus at ).
Rush+ had the additional effect of giving some further number of passengers transfer-free journeys, though severely increasing headways for the portion of the Blue Line running between and. In May 2017, Metro announced that Yellow Rush+ service would be eliminated effective June 25, 2017. Passenger information systems [ ]. PIDS signs at the A (PIDS) was installed in all Metrorail stations in 2000. Displays are located on all track platforms and at the mezzanine entrances of stations, and provide real-time information on next train arrivals, delayed trains, emergency announcements, and related information.
WMATA also provides current train and related information to customers with conventional, as well as users of and other mobile devices. In 2010 Metro began sharing its PIDS data with outside software developers, for use in creating additional real-time applications for mobile devices. Free apps are available to the public on major mobile device software platforms (,,, ). WMATA also began providing real-time train information by phone in 2010. Fare structure [ ]. Standard self-service vending machines for passes and farecards located at each station Riders enter and exit the system using a in the form of a known as.
The fare is deducted from the balance of the card when exiting. SmarTrip cards can be purchased at station vending machines, online or at retail outlets, and can store up to $300 in value.
Metro fares vary based on the distance traveled and the time of day at entry. During peak hours (weekdays from opening until 9:30 a.m. And 3–7 p.m.), fares (effective 2014) range from $2.25 to $6.00, depending on distance traveled. At all other times, fares range from $2.00 to $3.85 based on distance traveled. Discounted fares are available for school children, the disabled, and the elderly. Metro charges reduced fares on all.
[ ] Since June 25, 2017, the first fare hike in three years, peak-period rail fares increased 10 cents, with $2.25 as the new minimum and $6 as the maximum one-way fare. Off-peak fares rose 25 cents, to $2 minimum, $3.85 maximum, as will bus fares. A new one-day unlimited rail / bus pass will be available for $14.75. Passengers may purchase passes at farecard vending machines. Passes are loaded onto the same SmarTrip cards as stored value, but grant riders unlimited travel within the system for a certain period of time.
The period of validity starts with the first use. Four types of passes are currently sold: • A One Day Pass for $14.75, valid for one day of unlimited Metrorail travel.
The pass expires at the end of the operating day. • A 7-Day Short Trip Pass for $38.50, valid for seven consecutive days for Metrorail trips costing up to $3.85 (the maximum off-peak fare) during peak fare times and any trip during off-peak hours. If the trip costs more than $3.60 the difference is deducted from the cash balance of a SmarTrip card, possibly after the necessary value is added at the Exitfare machine. A non-negative stored value is required to enter the Metrorail system. • A 7-Day Fast Pass for $60.00, valid for seven consecutive days of unlimited Metrorail travel. • A 28-Day Metrorail Fast Pass for $237. This is for convenience only, offering no savings over four uses of the 7-Day Fast Pass.
In addition, Metro sells SelectPass, available for purchase online only by registered SmarTrip cardholders, valid for trips up to a specified value for a specific calendar month, with the balance being deducted from the card’s cash value similarly to the Short Trip Pass. The pass is priced based on 18 days of round-trip travel. SelectPass is available in the following values: Trip value Rail-Only Rail+Bus $2.25 $81.00 $126.00 ‡ $2.50 $90.00 N/A $2.75 $99.00 N/A $3.00 $108.00 N/A $3.25 $117.00 N/A $3.50 $126.00 N/A $3.75 $135.00 $180.00 ‡ $4.00 $144.00 N/A ‡$5.90 ‡ ‡$212.40 ‡ N/A ‡ Beginning on June 16, pricing for the Rail+Bus SelectPass and the maximum fare SelectPass for the month of July will be increased to reflect the June 25 fare changes.
Users can add value to any farecard. Riders pay an based on time of day and distance traveled. Trips may include segments on multiple lines under one fare as long as the rider does not exit the faregates, with the exception of the 'Farragut Crossing' out-of-station interchange between and stations. At Farragut Crossing, riders may exit from one station and reenter at the other within 30 minutes on a single fare. When making a trip that uses Metrobus and Metrorail, a 50¢ discount is available when using a SmarTrip card. When entering and exiting at the same station, users are normally charged a minimum fare ($2.15 / $1.75).
However since July 1, 2016 users have had a 15 minute grace period to exit the station; those who do so will receive a rebate of the amount paid as an autoload to their SmarTrip card. Students at District of Columbia public schools ride both Metrobus and Metrorail for free. Fare history [ ]. Front face of an old paper Metro farecard, listing declining-balance value remaining The contract for Metro's fare collection system was awarded in 1975 to.
Electronic fare collection using paper cards started on July 1, 1977, a little more than a year after the first stations opened. Prior to electronic fare collection, exact change fareboxes were used. Metro's historic paper farecard system is also shared by, which Cubic won a contract for in 1974. Any remaining value stored on the paper cards was printed on the card at each exit, and passes were printed with the expiration date. Several adjustments were made to shift the availability of passes from paper tickets to SmarTrip cards in 2012 and 2013. In May 2014 Metro announced plans to retrofit more than 500 fare vending machines throughout the system to dispense SmarTrip cards, rather than paper fare cards, and eventually eliminate magnetic fare cards entirely.
This was completed in early December 2015 when the last paper farecard was sold. The faregates stopped accepting paper farecards on March 6, 2016, and the last day for trading in farecards to transfer the value to SmarTrip was June 30, 2016. Safety and security [ ] Security [ ]. Metro Transit Police cruiser Metro planners designed the system with passenger safety and order maintenance as primary considerations. The open vaulted ceiling design of stations and the limited obstructions on platforms allow few opportunities to conceal criminal activity. Station platforms are built away from station walls to limit vandalism and provide for diffused lighting of the station from recessed lights. Metro's attempts to reduce crime, combined with how the station environments were designed with in mind, has contributed to Metro being among the safest and cleanest subway systems in the United States.
There are nearly 6,000 video surveillance cameras used across the system to enhance security. Metro is patrolled by its own police force, which is charged with ensuring the safety of passengers and employees.
Transit Police officers patrol the Metro system and, and they have jurisdiction and arrest powers throughout the 1,500-square-mile (3,900 km 2) Metro service area for crimes that occur on or against transit authority facilities, or within 150 feet (46 m) of a Metrobus stop. The Metro Transit Police Department is one of two U.S. Police agencies that has local police authority in three 'state'-level jurisdictions (Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia), the U.S.
Park Police being the other. Each city and county in the Metro service area has similar ordinances that regulate or prohibit vending on Metro-owned property, and which prohibit riders from eating, drinking, or smoking in Metro trains, buses, and stations; the Transit Police have a reputation for enforcing these laws rigorously.
One widely publicized incident occurred in October 2000 when police arrested 12-year-old Ansche Hedgepeth for eating in the station. In a 2004 opinion by, now, the upheld Hedgepeth's arrest. By then WMATA had answered negative publicity by adopting a policy of first issuing warnings to, and arresting them only after three violations within a year. Metro's policy on food, trash and other sources of disorder embodies the ' philosophy of crime reduction. This philosophy also extends to the use of station restroom facilities. A longstanding policy, intended to curb unlawful and unwanted activity, has been to only allow employees to use Metro restrooms. Station managers may make exceptions for passengers with small children, the elderly, or the disabled.
Metro now allows the use of restrooms by passengers who gain a station manager's permission, except during periods of heightened. Random bag searches [ ] On October 27, 2008, the announced plans to immediately begin random searches of backpacks, purses, and other bags. Transit police would search riders at random before boarding a bus or entering a station.
It also explained its intent to stop anyone acting suspiciously. Metro claims that the decision in MacWade v. Kelly, which upheld random searches on the New York City Subway, allows Metro Transit Police to take similar action. Metro Transit Police Chief Michael Taborn stated that, if someone were to turn around and simply enter the system through another escalator or elevator, Metro has 'a plan to address suspicious behavior'.
Security expert characterized the plan as ' against a ' and does not believe random bag searches actually improve security. The Metro Riders' Advisory Council recommended to WMATA’s board of directors that Metro hold at least one public meeting regarding the search program. As of December 2008, Metro had not conducted a single bag search.
In 2010 Metro once again announced that it would implement random bag searches, and conducted the first such searches on December 21, 2010. The searches consist of swabbing bags and packages for explosive residue, and or opening any packages which turned up positive.
On the first day of searches, at least one false positive for explosives was produced, which Metro officials indicated could occur for a variety of reasons including if a passenger had recently been in contact with firearms or been to a firing range. Bill of Rights Coalition and the Montgomery County Civil Rights Coalition circulated a petition against random bag searches, taking the position that the practice violates the and would not improve security. On January 3, 2011, Metro held a public forum for the searches at a Metro Riders' Advisory Council meeting, at which more than 50 riders spoke out, most of them in opposition to the searches. However at the meeting Metro officials called random bag inspections a 'success' and claimed that few riders had complained. After a prolonged absence, as of February 2017, bag searches have resumed at random stations throughout the Washington Metro area.
[ ] Safety [ ] Accidents and incidents [ ]. Main article: Several collisions have occurred on Washington Metro, resulting in injuries and fatalities, along with numerous derailments with few or no injuries. WMATA has been criticized for disregarding safety warnings and advice from experts. The Tri-State Oversight Committee oversaw WMATA, but had no regulatory authority. Metro's safety department is usually in charge of investigating incidents, but could not require other Metro departments to implement its recommendations. Following several safety lapses, the assumed oversight at WMATA. Collisions [ ].
Crash at the on November 3, 2004 During the, on January 6, a Metro operator was killed when a train failed to stop at the station. The four-car train overran the station platform and struck an unoccupied train that was awaiting assignment. The (NTSB) investigation found that the crash was a result of a failure in the train's computer-controlled braking system. The NTSB recommended that Metro grant train operators the ability to manually control the braking system, even in inclement weather, and recommended that Metro prohibit parked rail cars on tracks used by incoming outbound trains. On November 3, 2004, an out-of-service Red Line train rolled backwards into the station, hitting an in-service train stopped at the platform. The rear car (1077) was by the first car of the standing train (4018).
No one was killed, but 20 people were injured. A 14-month investigation concluded that the train operator was most likely not alert as the train rolled backwards into the station. Safety officials estimated that had the train been full, at least 79 people would have died. The train operator was dismissed and Metro officials agreed to add rollback protection to more than 300 rail cars. In which nine people were killed. On June 22, 2009, at 5:02 pm,.
A southbound train heading toward Shady Grove stopped on the track short of the Fort Totten station and another southbound train collided with its rear. The front car of the moving train (1079) was telescoped by the rear car of the standing train (5066), and passengers were trapped. Nine people died and more than 70 were injured, dozens of whom were described as '.
Red Line service was suspended between the Fort Totten and Takoma stations, and New Hampshire Avenue was closed. One of the dead was the operator of the train that collided with the stopped train. On November 29, 2009, at 4:27 am, at the West Falls Church train yard. One train pulled in and collided into the back of the other train.
No customers were aboard, and only minor injuries to the operators and cleaning staff were reported. However, three cars (1106, 1171, and 3216) were believed to be damaged beyond repair. Derailments [ ].
Green Line train following the January 7, 2007 derailment On January 13, 1982, a train at a malfunctioning crossover switch south of the station. In attempting to restore the train to the rails, supervisors failed to notice that another car had also derailed. The other rail car slid off the track and hit a tunnel support, killing three people and injuring 25. Coincidentally, this crash occurred about 30 minutes after crashed into the nearby during a major snowstorm. On January 20, 2003, during construction of a new canopy at the station, Metro began running trains through the center track even though it had not been constructed for standard operations, and a Blue Line train derailed at the switch. No injuries resulted but the crash delayed construction by a number of weeks.
On January 7, 2007, a Green Line train carrying approximately 120 people derailed near the station in downtown Washington. Trains were single-tracking at the time, and the derailment of the fifth car occurred where the train was switching from the south to northbound track. The crash injured at least 18 people and prompted the rescue of 60 people from a tunnel. At least one person had a serious but non-life-threatening injury. The Mount Vernon Square crash was one of a series of five derailments involving cars, with four of those occurring on side tracks and not involving passengers.
On June 9, 2008, an Orange Line train (2000-series) derailed between the Rosslyn and Court House stations. On February 12, 2010, a Red Line train derailed at about 10:13 am as it left the station in downtown Washington. After leaving the station, the train entered the north of the station. As it continued, an at the end of the pocket track intentionally derailed the train as a safety measure. If the train had continued moving forward on the pocket track, it would have entered the path of an oncoming train. The wheels of the first two cars in the six-car, White-Flint-bound train were forced off the tracks, stopping the train. Almost all of the estimated 345 passengers were evacuated from the damaged train by 11:50 am and the NTSB arrived on the scene by noon.
Two minor injuries were reported, and a third passenger was taken to. The NTSB ruled the crash was due to the train operator's failure to follow standard procedures and WMATA management for failure to provide proper supervision of the train operator which resulted in the incomplete configuration of the train identification and destination codes leading to the routing of the train into the pocket track.
On April 24, 2012, around 7:15 pm, a Blue Line train bound for Franconia–Springfield derailed near Rosslyn. No injuries were reported. On July 6, 2012, around 4:45 pm, a Green Line train bound for downtown Washington, D.C.
And Branch Avenue derailed near West Hyattsville. No injuries were reported. A, due to the hot weather, was identified as the probable cause of the accident. On August 6, 2015, a non-passenger train derailed outside Smithsonian station. The track condition that caused the derailment had been detected a month earlier but was not repaired. On July 29, 2016, a Silver Line train heading in the direction of Wiehle-Reston East station derailed outside East Falls Church station. Service was suspended between Ballston and West Falls Church and McLean stations on the Orange and Silver Lines.
On September 1, 2016, Metro announced the derailment of an empty six-car train in the Alexandria Rail Yard. No injuries or service interruptions were reported and an investigation is ongoing. Safety measures [ ] On July 13, 2009, WMATA adopted a 'zero tolerance' policy for train or bus operators found to be texting or using other hand-held devices while on the job.
This new and stricter policy came after investigations of several mass-transit accidents in the U.S. Found that operators were texting at the time of the accident. The policy change was announced the day after a passenger of a Metro train videotaped the operator texting while operating the train. Smoke incidents [ ] On January 12, 2015, during early evening rush, a Yellow Line train stopped in the tunnel and filled with smoke just after departing L'Enfant Plaza for Pentagon due to 'an electrical arcing event' ahead in the tunnel. Everyone on board was evacuated; 84 people were taken to hospitals and one person died. On March 14, 2016, an electrified rail caught fire between McPherson Square and Farragut West, causing significant disruptions on the Blue, Orange, and Silver lines.
On March 15, a decision was made to close the entire rail network the following day to inspect the network's entire electric rail power grid. Future expansion [ ] WMATA expects an average of one million riders daily by 2030.
The need to increase capacity has renewed plans to add 220 cars to the system and reroute trains to alleviate congestion at the busiest stations. Population growth in the region has also revived efforts to extend service, build new stations, and construct additional lines.
Silver Line [ ]. Main article: The most prominent expansion is the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project, dubbed the Silver Line, a 23-mile (37 km) extension from the Orange Line into, by way of and. Rail to Dulles has been discussed since the system opened in 1976. The current Silver Line project was formally proposed in 2002 and initially approved by the in 2004. After several delays, federal funding for Phase 1 was secured in December 2008 and construction began in March 2009. The line is being constructed in two phases; the first phase to in opened July 26, 2014, and the second phase to, beyond Dulles Airport, is projected for completion in 2019 or 2020.
Blue Line realignment [ ] Blue Line trains share a single tunnel with Orange Line and Silver Line trains to cross the Potomac River. The current tunnel limits service in each direction, creating a choke point.
A 2001 proposal would have rerouted the Blue Line between the and stations by building a bridge or tunnel from Virginia to a new station in. The proposal was later rejected due to cost, but Metro again started considering a similar scenario in 2011. Orange Line extension [ ] The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) announced on January 18, 2008, that it and the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation (DRPT) had begun work on a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the I-66 corridor in Fairfax and Prince William counties. According to VDOT the EIS, officially named the I-66 Multimodal Transportation and Environment Study, would focus on improving mobility along I-66 from the Capital Beltway (I-495) interchange in Fairfax County to the interchange with U.S. Route 15 in Prince William County. The EIS also allegedly includes a four-station extension of the Orange Line past Vienna.
The extension would continue to run in the I-66 median and would have stations at Chain Bridge Road, Fair Oaks, Stringfellow Road and Centreville near Virginia Route 28 and U.S. In its final report published June 8, 2012, the study and analysis revealed that an 'extension would have a minimal impact on Metrorail ridership and volumes on study area roadways inside the Beltway and would therefore not relieve congestion in the study corridor.'
Fort Belvoir and Fort Meade extensions [ ] In 2005 the announced that it would be shifting 18,000 jobs to in Virginia and at least 5,000 jobs to in Maryland by 2012, as part of that year's plan. In anticipation of such a move, local officials and the military proposed extending the Blue and Green Lines to service each base. The proposed extension of the Green Line could cost $100 million per mile ($60 million per kilometer), and a extension to Fort Belvoir was estimated to cost up to $800 million. Neither proposal has established timelines for planning or construction. Potomac Yard station [ ].
See also: In 2008 officials began to explore the possibility of adding an called in the area of Alexandria, on the Blue and Yellow Lines between the and stations. In 2010 the Alexandria City Council approved a portion of the proposed $240 million construction of the station. Construction would start in 2017 and the station is expected to open in 2020. Other new rail lines [ ] In 2011 Metro began studying the needs of the system through 2040. New Metro rail lines and extensions under consideration as part of this long term plan include: a new line which parallels the; a new line from the Metro station to, which would pass through the District and; an extension of the to in Maryland; and re-routing the in the District between the and Green Line. None of these lines are yet funded for planning or construction.
Related non-WMATA projects [ ]. Proposed route of the A number of and urban projects have been proposed to extend or supplement service provided by Metro. Like the Silver Line in Virginia, the proposed has been in planning since the 1980s. The project was originally envisioned as a circular heavy rail line connecting the outer stations on each branch of the Metrorail system, in a pattern roughly mirroring the.
The current proposal would create a light rail system in Maryland between the and stations by way of and. Such a plan would connect both branches of the Red Line to the Green and Orange Lines, and would decrease the travel time between suburban Metro stations. The (CCT) is a proposed 15-mile (24 km) line that would link in northern with the station on the Red Line. Assuming that the anticipated federal, state, and local government funds are provided, construction of the first 9 miles (14 km) of the system would begin in 2018. In 2005, a Maryland lawmaker proposed a light rail system to connect areas of, especially the rapidly growing area around the town of, to the station on the Green Line.
The District of Columbia Department of Transportation is building the new system to improve transit connectivity within the District. A tram line to connect to the station and was originally expected to open in 2010.
Streetcar routes have been proposed in the,, and the. After seven years of construction, the Atlas District route, known as the H/Benning Street route, opened on February 27, 2016. In 2013, the Georgetown Business Improvement District proposed a between and as an alternative to placing a Metro stop at Georgetown in its 2013–2028 economic plans. Washington, D.C and Arlington County have been conducting feasibility studies for it since 2016. See also [ ] • • • • References [ ].
