More service returning Saturday, Aug. 21

     

To respond to changes in travel demand due to the anticipated “return-to-office” for some this fall, Metro Transit will continue to refine its service schedule with quarterly service changes starting on Saturday, Aug. 21. We are adding and restoring service and trips to some routes where ridership demand is expected to increase and keeping some service suspended. We are focusing our resources in areas where they are most needed to provide critical travel during this ongoing period of transition.

Routes with changes effective Aug. 21 will link to .pdf preview of new schedule.
Routes with no changes will link to current schedule (if service/schedule continues).



As the pandemic continues, remember:

Face coverings are still required by federal mandate on public transit.  

• Transit Information is available by phone (612-373-3333) and text (612-444-1161) 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.
