Metrobus Snow Service

Metrobus stop in snow

Light Snowfall

During light snowfall, most Metrobus service will operate normally, but there are a few exceptions. Light snow is generally described as accumulations of a dusting up to two inches and can be visually determined when asphalt has been exposed by tire marks. Light snowfall may result in some Metrobus routes being detoured due to road conditions. Customers should sign up for MetroAlerts to learn when buses are detouring.

Moderate Snowfall

During moderate snow accumulation or light ice conditions, Metro will restrict bus service to moderate snow routes. Service is suspended on some routes and buses are detoured around roads prone to hazardous conditions, including many neighborhood streets. Passengers may experience increased wait times due to road conditions. View moderate snow route details.

Severe Snowfall and Ice

During severe or heavy snow accumulation or icy conditions, Metro will restrict bus service to severe snow routes. Service is limited to major roads only and passengers should anticipate service delays and increased wait times. Passengers traveling when Severe snow routes are in place should be aware Metrobus may have to suspend all service if road and travel conditions become unsafe. View severe snow route details.
