Veterans Day, honoring all those who have served in the U.S. military forces, is Thursday (Nov. 11).

From banks to post offices and more, expect many services to be not operating to observe the holiday.

Libraries, courts and other swaths of county, state and federal services are affected, such as the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.

Aside from banks, most businesses will be open. If you’re unsure, call ahead to check.

Meanwhile, Fairfax County Public Schools will have a two-hour early release.

Transportation

The Fairfax Connector will operate on a holiday weekday schedule, meaning some routes will offer their standard, weekday service, while others won’t operate at all.

The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority Metrorail will continue with its reduced frequencies on the Silver Line amid its railcar investigation following a derailment in Arlington on Oct. 12.

WMATA buses will operate on a Saturday schedule.

Metro will have off-peak fares throughout the day, and parking at all Metro-owned lots and garages will be free.

Parks, Falls Church Services

County recreation centers and parts of Frying Pan Farm Park will be open, but other Fairfax County Park Authority centers will be closed.

Rec Center admission will be free for all veterans, active-duty military personnel, and their families with a military identification.

City of Falls Church offices and services, including the Mary Riley Styles Public Library, will be closed.
