Greenbelt and College Park Metro Stations to Reopen Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Greenbelt, College Park, and two Hyattsville Metro stations will reopen.

These stations were closed for repairs at the end of May. Commuters had the option of taking a shuttle bus to Fort Totten.

The closures were part of extensive renovations of 20 of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s 45 outdoor station platforms, which have fallen into disrepair from routine wear and tear and exposure to the weather.

The renovations included new slip-resistant tiles, stainless-steel platform shelters with windscreens and USB charging ports, LED-illuminated handrails, more electrical outlets, renovated bathrooms and LED lighting, among other things.

Home Handrails offers a range of handrails for outdoor steps that are designed to help the aged and people in need of assistance when using entrance steps to a home. If you need some installed then consider looking for your next Aluminum Deck Railing Systems.

The stations will have twice as many digital screens showing upcoming trains and service alerts, which will now scroll along the bottom.

WMATA is also upgrading faregates across the system. You can check here to see if your SmarTrip card needs to be replaced.

    Yesterday when I drove through the kiss and ride I noticed that about 1/2 or more of the parking lot is filled with debris either from the upgrades or like many other metro lots is going to have building placed on it.
