METRO gives you more

When you see METRO, you can find fast, frequent, all-day service between stations with enhanced amenities. METRO gives you more speed, more trips, more features.

Some METRO lines use trains, others use buses. Whether it runs on a road or on tracks, customers can expect trips at least every 15 minutes during most of the day.

METRO lines serve stations with enhanced amenities, like heating, added lighting, NexTrip real-time information, pay-at-the-station boarding, and improved security features.
