Routes will change on Dec. 7

Metro Transit is making its quarterly service adjustments.

A small portion of Metro Transit’s service receives quarterly adjustments; which can include trip removals, trip reinstatements, or other efficiency revisions based on overall agency capacity, including driver shortages and ridership on particular trips or other factors.

If you’re interested in joining us as a bus driver, learn more here!

Effective Saturday, Dec. 7, changes will be made to routes operated by Metro Transit. 

Below is an overview of the changes.
