WASHINGTON (AP) — The regional train system serving the Washington D.C. area will remain on drastically reduced service levels through at least the end of this year.

Officials announced Monday that there were no set timelines for the return of the 7000-series train cars, which comprise about 60% of the fleet. A plan to bring older cars back into service has been delayed by a shortage of parts due to the global supply chain crisis.
