Labor Day Schedule


The first Labor Day was celebrated in 1882 in New York City, planned by the Central Labor Union. Since then, the first Monday in September honors the labor movement and the social and economic achievements of all American workers, says the U.S. Department of Labor.

As we get ready to celebrate the long weekend, METRO will be operating on a Labor Day schedule. On Monday, Sept. 3, Labor Day, here’s the rundown:

  • Local buses will run on a Sunday schedule.
  • METRORail will run on a Sunday schedule.
