SERVICE ALERT: Metrobus service suspension for the remainder of the evening through 5 a.m. Friday
Due to extremely hazardous conditions that developed quickly on area roadways, Metro is suspending all bus service this evening, effective immediately. Bus service had been restored at 2 p.m. with limited service on only a small number of major arteries. At this time, service cannot be safely maintained on even those routes.
Metrobus service will remain suspended until 5 a.m. Friday. Starting at 5 a.m., Metro will run limited bus service on major arteries, similar to this afternoon's service.
The following routes are expected to have limited service, if conditions permit:
All bus service may be subject to detours and delays due to road conditions. Buses will operate less frequently than a normal schedule, and riders may experience increased wait time at their bus stop. All bus customers are encouraged to allow extra time and sign up for MetroAlerts to receive route-specific updates.
