ARLnow Weekend Discussion

Metro logo on a pickup truckIt’s not going to be a good weekend for taking Metro.

All Metrorail lines save the Green Line will be running every 24 minutes due to Metro’s ongoing major weekend track work.

An poll on Thursday found that fully 80 percent of 1,632 respondents reported taking Metrorail less often due to repeated service breakdowns — underscoring the importance of Metro’s rebuilding effort.

If you do find yourself with an extended wait at a Metro station this weekend, you might check out our latest sponsored column.

On Saturday, the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy (AIRE) is launching a biweekly sponsored column, our first regularly-scheduled weekend feature.

Energy is fundamental to our lives and livelihoods, and AIRE is devoted to helping Arlington residents make smart energy decisions to save money and leave a lighter footprint on the environment.

The intrepid AIRE team will answer your questions to help you rethink energy and take action.

If you have questions about solar, heating and cooling, lighting, energy audits, insulation, or other energy topics, email [email protected].

Feel free to discuss Metro, energy efficiency or any other topic of local interest in the comments.
