WASHINGTON — Metro has resumed limited rail and bus service, and the rides are free for the day. The system’s head said nearly all rail stations would reopen Tuesday.

Metro head Paul J. Wiedefeld said Monday afternoon that 79 of 91 rail stations had reopened. He said that on Tuesday, there would be service at all stations except the five stations on the silver line, which he could not commit to opening. Fares will also go back into effect.

On Monday, trains were running at least every 20 to 25 minutes until midnight. On Tuesday, trains were expected to run every 12 minutes.

Bus service was running until 5 p.m. Monday on about two dozen routes. Wiedefeld said on Tuesday that will go up to 79 routes.
