After the Blue Line derailment earlier this month prompted service cuts, Metro is adding seven more trains starting Monday, according to a news release from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
WMATA expects to have 39 trains in service on Monday, an increase from the 32 trains that operated on Friday. Green Line trains will operate every 20 minutes, and the Silver Line is expected to have full service between Wiehle-Reston East Station and Largo Town Center Station.
Red Line trains will operate every 15 to 20 minutes, while Yellow, Blue, Orange and Silver line trains will operate every 30 to 40 minutes.

Following the derailment on Oct. 12, WMATA removed all 748 7000 series rail cars from service. The 7000 series railcars make up about 60 percent of WMATA’s entire fleet.
Since removing 7000 series trains from service, WMATA has brought older model 2000 and 3000 series trains out of storage, according to the news release.
WMATA will continue operating on this schedule through at least Nov. 15, according to the news release.
