As METRO navigates the coronavirus pandemic, transit service has been and continues to be affected daily. Because of a need to re-allocate resources, some routes were temporarily suspended and later permanently removed, and yet they still appear on the system map; some temporary microtransit zones don’t appear on the map yet. Because of ongoing pandemic-related staff absences, transit schedules have been adjusted, particularly on weekends, and some regularly scheduled trips/operating hours throughout the week are on short-term and/or pop-up cancellations or detours. To get the most accurate information, check regular maps and schedules first, then click here to find all of the active, ongoing service alert information tied to that route or zone; then look for short-term service alerts that may also be in effect, which can always be found at the top of this page, in the red bar. Your patience is appreciated as we continue adjusting service in response to the pandemic. The goal is to keep essential public transit service in operation while protecting public health.
