Service changes beginning July 31 will improve systemwide reliability

Several bus trips will be suspended indefinitely beginning Tuesday, July 31, to improve systemwide reliability.

The trips are being suspended as Metro Transit continues an aggressive campaign to hire more bus drivers. Metro Transit is about 90 bus drivers short of its target, which has made it harder to cover all scheduled trips, despite tremendous daily efforts to do so.

The suspensions represent around 1 percent of all weekday scheduled bus trips.

Suspending trips will allow Metro Transit to focus on fulfilling all scheduled service. The decision also reflects a desire to proactively communicate with customers so alternative plans can be made.

Online schedules and NexTrip being have been updated to reflect the service changes.

These service changes will help reduce the number of trips that are being canceled at the last moment, after exhausting all available options. Customers will continue to receive real-time text and e-mail notifications if a trip is unexpectedly canceled.

The next round of scheduled service changes will take effect on Saturday, Aug. 18. Be sure to check new online schedules when they are available.

Need help planning an alternative trip? Call the Transit Information Center at 612-373-3333.
