Passengers are currently being taken off of the first train (the rescue train was empty). Red Line trains are single-tracking around the derailments, and are sharing the same track between Friendship Heights and Medical Center.
If you're traveling on the Red Line, you should consider alternative transportation.
- Buses L7 and L8 run north on Connecticut Avenue from Friendship Heights.
- Buses J2, J3, & J4 run from Silver Spring to Bethesda.
- Buses C2 and C4 run from Wheaton to Twinbrook.
