Metro has announced an email and text alert system that will inform riders about service delays, schedule changes and other information pertinent to their commutes.
Riders interested in signing up for the alerts can sign up online at WMATA.com. Information will be sent to their mobile phones or desktop computers. The alert system will operate between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. weekdays.
The Metrorail service already has a similar alert system in place.
