Quarterly service changes begin Saturday, Dec. 2

    

On Saturday, Dec. 2, Metro Transit will make changes to transit service throughout the metro. As always, these quarterly service changes adapt and adjust our service based on current and projected ridership and our available resources and driver workforce.

Some highlights this quarter include:

  • Return of weekday Route 351 service from Woodbury to St. Paul
     
  • Frequency improvements on some routes and route segments (Routes 21, 724)
     
  • Return of some suspended route segments due to end of construction

As stability in Metro Transit’s workforce continues to improve and ridership increases, we are embarking on how to strengthen our service over the next five years - a project called Network Now.



Transit Information is available by phone (612-373-3333), text (612-444-1161) and website chat (metrotransit.org) Monday-Friday 6:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and at Service Centers in downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis – hours and locations here.  Customer Relations is available by phone (612-373-3333) and online Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
