Metrobus to start Thursday with possible snow detours in effect

Metrobus will begin Thursday, March 22, on a light snow plan with snow detours in effect on a route-by-route basis where hilly terrain or narrow streets may be problematic for buses.

Under a light snow plan, all Metrobus routes are in service. However, some buses may experience delays or isolated detours due to road conditions caused by a refreeze overnight. Metro will alert riders on a route-by-route basis through MetroAlerts email and text messages, on and Twitter. Riders are encouraged to check the Status and Alerts page for the latest information.

Metrobus will continue on a severe snow plan for the remainder of Wednesday and transition to a light snow plan beginning 4 a.m. Thursday at the start of the service day.

MetroAccess paratransit service for riders with disabilities will be restored on Thursday. Customers may experience delays and service impacts due to road conditions. The MetroAccess call center will also be open regular operating hours to assist customers with rescheduling reservations.

Metrorail will open tomorrow at 5 a.m. with normal weekday service on all rail lines.
