Some routes adjusted to avoid hilly, narrow streets; riders encouraged to check website for details

Metrobus service will transition from the current "severe" snow plan to a "moderate" snow service plan, starting at 11:00 a.m. today.  

Under the moderate snow service plan, all Metrobus routes will have service as of 11 a.m. with snow detours in effect to keep buses off of hilly terrain, narrow side streets and other problem areas. Riders can get details and check maps showing the planned detours by using the links below:

Even when service is restored, buses may experience delays due to road conditions. Please allow additional time and use extreme caution when traveling.  For your safety, never stand in the roadway while waiting for a bus.  For delay and detour information affecting individual routes, check the bus alerts page or sign up for MetroAlerts.
