      Metro on weekend schedule for Columbus Day

      WASHINGTON (AP) - Trains and buses in Washington are running on a weekend schedule for the Columbus Day holiday.

      Metro says the rail system will open at 5 a.m. and close at midnight as is usual for a Monday.

      But off-peak fares will be in effect all day.

      There's also scheduled track work on the red and orange lines that will slow travelers.

      Buses will operate on a Saturday schedule.
