Pair posted schedule information with ongoing and short-term service alerts!
As METRO navigates the coronavirus pandemic, transit service has been and continues to be affected. Please use individual schedule brochures and the Google Map found on this page to view route patterns as the printed system map is updated. The expanded and new Little Rock and North Little Rock microtransit zones launched in June 2022 were intended to coincide with pending fixed bus route changes approved in 2020. Due to the national shortage of fixed route bus operators, the fixed bus routes have not yet changed according to the approved plan. Saturday fixed route bus service now starts later and stops earlier than pre-pandemic fixed route bus service as a direct result of this national fixed route bus operator shortage. This means that, for some microtransit zones, microtransit service begins earlier and runs later than the fixed route bus service on Saturdays. Pop-up service cancellations or detours, including those related to the 30 Crossing construction project, will still happen on occasion. To get the most accurate information, check regular maps and schedules first, then look for service alerts that may also be in effect, which can always be found at the top of this page, in the red bar.
- Monday-Friday, 5 a.m.-8 p.m.
- Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Sunday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
