Local transit and bus service will change a bit this weekend for the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

METRO:

On Memorial Day, trains and buses will be running on a Sunday schedule with train service starting at 7 a.m. Parking in Metro lots and garages will be free.

Metro will be shutting down train service on portions of the Red and Orange lines for the entire three-day weekend due to track work beginning at 10 p.m. Friday. There will not be any planned track work on the Blue, Green or Yellow lines, though.

RED: Riders traveling between Shady Grove, Rockville and Twinbrook stops will need to take free shuttle buses, since Shady Grove and Rockville will be closed.

ORANGE: The four stations at the Orange Line's western end will be closed -- Vienna, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church and East Falls Church -- with riders needing to take free shuttle buses to travel between those stations and Ballston.

MARC:

MARC commuter trains will not run on Memorial Day, but the train service will be shifting service this Friday on the Brunswick and Penn lines with either longer trains or slight adjustments to accommodate workers leaving early for the holiday weekend.

VIRGINIA RAILWAY EXPRESS:

VRE commuter trains will not be running on Memorial Day.
