In early 2017, Metro's Board of Directors approved four major changes to the Metro system: a fare increase, updated schedule, altered hours of operation and the renaming of two popular stations.

Last week, the service announced that on Sunday, June 25, 2017 these changes will officially take effect. Here's what you can look forward to:

 

Altered Hours of Operation

Metrorail system hours will be adjusted to provide an additional eight hours of track access weekly to improve safety and service reliability:
