News & Events

Minor service adjustments began Saturday, June 13

As part of the ongoing, shared effort to limit the spread of COVID-19, Metro Transit continued a reduced service schedule on Saturday, June 13. This is to address a sharp decline in ridership and to focus our resources where they are most needed to provide critical travel during this crisis.

Schedules that went into effect on June 13 keep service at about the same level as prior – roughly 65% what it was at the beginning of the year – with some minor adjustments to add rush-hour service. Light rail and Northstar schedules will remain as is. 

Continue to watch metrotransit.org/health for the latest information. 

Remember:

  • Face coverings are required while riding buses/trains. Exemptions include children under age 2, and those who have trouble breathing or are unable to remove the face covering without assistance are exempt. Get details on face coverings.
  • Board and exit buses using the back door. The front doors and ramps are available for those who need it for any reason.
  • Keep distance between you and others, especially the driver.
  • When boarding, if the bus or train does not have space to allow adequate social distancing, the operator will display "Next Bus Please" on the overhead sign, notifying customers that they need to wait for the next trip.
  • (New 6/27) Light rail service operates between 4 a.m. and 11:30 p.m. daily. (METRO Blue Line airport shuttle between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 stations continues to operate.)
  • Transit Information is available by phone (612-373-3333) and text (612-444-1161) Monday-Friday 6:30 a.m. – 9 p.m.; Customer Relations is available by phone (612-373-3333) and online Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
