Transit service for year-end holidays — Expired

Metro Transit buses and METRO lines will follow Holiday schedules on Christmas Day (Wednesday, Dec. 25) and New Year’s Day (Wednesday, Jan. 1). Northstar trains will not operate on either day.

Metro Transit stores, Customer Relations and Lost & Found will be closed both days. The Transit Information Center is closed Dec. 25, but will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Jan. 1.
