Columbus Day might make for a long weekend for federal government employees and a whole host of others, but don’t expect to see many county services on hold to mark the occasion.
Monday (Oct. 8) is the lone federal holiday where Arlington County offices and facilities remain open, with a few exceptions.
County schools will be closed Monday, as will the county’s courts and DMV locations. The county also won’t enforce parking meters on Columbus Day.
Arlington Transit will still operate, albeit with a Saturday schedule for routes 41, 42, 43, 45, 51, 55, 77 and 87. Other routes won’t run, and the ART call center will be closed.
Metro will also offer reduced service on its train and bus routes.
Trains will run on a Saturday schedule, running every 12 minutes during the day, and the service will be open from 5 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. Buses will run on a Saturday supplemental schedule, with full details available here. Planned night track work will continue as normal, which could further slow some trains.
