WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Washington area metro system said on Friday it would continue sharply reduced metro service until at least October 31, as it struggles to finalize plans to return to service most of its cars after a derailment on October 12.

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) on Sunday was ordered to indefinitely remove about 60% of the cars from the subway system following the inspection of the cars after the derailment. The subway system, known as the Metro and which serves the U.S. capital and parts of Maryland and Virginia, has urged commuters to take buses or use other modes of transportation.
