Shady Grove and Rockville stations reopening on Sunday


MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Md. (WDVM) — Shady Grove and Rockville stations are set to reopen on Sunday, Jan. 16.

After a four-month closure due to an improvement project, customers will be returning to an upgraded Rockville and Shady Grove Station. New features include new digital passenger information screens, escalator repairments, upgraded faregates to make accessing transit easier and more.

Metro said that customers should still expect to see some construction activity while the stations remain open.

“We look forward to welcoming customers back to Rockville and Shady Grove stations this week.  While station closures cause inconvenience at the time, the work is a sign of our commitment to infrastructure and maintenance improvements to ensure safety and reliability for our customers,” said Metro General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld. “Metro’s capital improvement program continues to advance projects that  ensure a state of good repair for regional transit infrastructure.” 

Metro says residents should pay attention to these dates:

  • Red Line service resumes on Jan. 16, 2022, at Shady Grove and Rockville stations. 
  • Free shuttle bus service will end on Jan. 15, 2022.  
  • SmarTrip® cards purchased before 2012 will not work with the new faregates at both stations. Replace your old card here
