Metro: only three lines with normal traffic

Like Thursday, only three lines will experience normal traffic, the 1 and 14 which are automatic, and the 11.
Five more will operate on normal operating hours (5:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.) but with fewer trains than usual and sometimes closed stations.
The other lines will only operate at certain times.
