Impacts to Metrobus Trips Due to Safety Inspections
Advisory Effective: 4/10/18 - 4/15/18
Service information as of Tuesday, April 10 at 5:00 p.m.
On March 28, Metro removed from service 164 buses - representing approximately 10 percent of its fleet - for safety checks following two incidents where the bus stalled unexpectedly at low speed. The manufacturer of the buses, New Flyer, and Metro continue to investigate the cause of these incidents. Click here for the latest update on the investigation.
Despite the 164 buses being out of service, Metro is providing 98% of scheduled trips on most weekdays. However, some trips will not operate due to lack of equipment. Please use the links below to review individual trips that will not operate.
If there is an impact on your route, Metro encourages you to consult the schedule for a bus trip before or after your normal travel time. You may also consider other Metrobus service, regional bus services (e.g. ART, Fairfax Connector, etc) or Metrorail service.
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we work to ensure the safest Metrobus fleet possible.
