The following are the procedures that will be implemented when OPM announces a change in operating status for the Federal government due to inclement weather:
- In the event that a Federal government closure in the Washington metropolitan area is announced before the start of the work-day, all shuttle service will be suspended for the duration of the time that Government offices are closed.
- In the event of a 2-hour delayed Federal government opening, the FDA White Oak shuttle schedule will be delayed. Shuttle service will begin at the first scheduled route time listed after 7:00 a.m.
- In the event of a 3-hour delayed Federal government opening, the FDA White Oak shuttle schedule will be delayed. Shuttle service will begin at the first scheduled route time listed after 8:00 a.m.
- In the event of an early release, shuttle service will continue as long as possible based on road and weather conditions and may terminate earlier than scheduled. Please plan your commute accordingly when an early release is announced by OPM, and leave work as soon as you can to assure your safe commute home.
In the event that OPM does not announce a change in operating status, but weather conditions create unsafe conditions or unforeseen delays, we will notify the campus by email as soon as possible once we have evaluated conditions.
If you require additional information concerning the status of the shuttle, please call 301-796-RIDE (7433).
