Daylight Savings Time means Metro stops one hour early this weekend
In case you haven't noticed any one of the barrage of reminders flying around out there, reminding everyone that Daylight Savings Time starts this weekend, here's one more -- and why it's even more important for Metro riders.
A Metrorail advisory issued Thursday reminds riders that, at 2 a.m. early this Sunday morning, March 9, clocks spring forward and it becomes 3 a.m. -- and that means Metrorail service ends one hour earlier than usual.
The last trains of the night will move through stations between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. EST, before the change.
Riders get an extra hour of service in November when the time "falls back" from 2 a.m. to 1 a.m.
So for those who work the late shift, or who will be out and about downtown on Saturday night into the wee hours, be sure to keep an eye on the clock to make sure you catch the last train home.
