Metro SubwayLink System to Shut Down for Emergency Inspection and Repairs Friday through Sunday

BALTIMORE, MD (FEBRUARY 8, 2018) – The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) has announced the entire Metro SubwayLink system will be temporarily shut down for emergency inspection and repairs Friday, February 9, through Sunday, February 11.
