Starting Sunday, Metro is changing up the Gold Line schedule a little. No, unfortunately, there will not be trains running later at night. No, no earlier trains in the morning either. This change affects those who travel during peak hours giving those commuters 7-8 minute headways instead of 10 minute ones.

But there is a trade for this few minute increase in waiting time between trains and that comes in form of the discontinuation of the Express Service (which we didn't like anyway)

Mid-day trains will now run every 12 minutes, offering one additional trip per hour from the previous 15-minute schedule. Likewise, weekend trains will run every 12 minutes from mid-morning until early evening, offering one additional trip per hour from the previous timetable. The change to 12-minute service during mid-day will now match Metro Red, Blue and Purple Line mid-day schedules, reducing overall trip times for patrons transferring to and from the Metro Gold and Metro Red Lines at Union Station.
