Metro says it is reopening today, but with very limited service. Service to all above-ground stations is still closed.

That means Wiehle-Reston East and all Silver Line service is not running Monday as the rail system continues to recover from the massive weekend blizzard.

The closest Reston-area commuters can get is the Orange Line at Ballston.

From Metro:

The Metrorail system will be open between 7 a.m. and midnight with limited underground service on the Red, Orange and Green lines as follows —

  • Orange Line: Ballston to Eastern Market only
  • Red Line: Medical Center to Union Station only
  • Green Line: Fort Totten to Anacostia only
  • Service on the Silver, Blue and Yellow lines will remain suspended. Stations not listed above will remain closed.

At the start of service, trains will run every 20-25 minutes. Service levels may be upgraded as conditions allow.

One bit of good news: Rides are free. Fares will not be charged on Metrorail on Monday, Metro says.
