Metrobus weekend service will reduce to 26 routes only, March 28 and 29

Advisory Effective: 3/28/20 - 3/29/20

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency, Metro will operate significantly reduced bus service this weekend, maintaining a core network of 26 “lifeline” bus routes for our region’s essential travel needs. 

Essential travel includes medical providers and hospital staff, first responders, critical government functions, individuals involved in helping the community respond to COVID-19, grocery and pharmacy trips, among others.

  • Please follow urgent guidance from state and local officials: Stay at home.
  • Metro is intended for essential trips only. Do not take Metro to view cherry blossoms or other non-essential trips.
  • If you are not feeling well, do not take public transportation. Call your healthcare provider before you leave your home and follow their guidance. 
Routes that are not listed will not operate. Customers should expect wait times of up to 30 minutes between buses. The hours that buses operate will vary by route but will generally align with the start and end of service on a Sunday schedule. The Metrobus lifeline service map can be found here. Please be aware that bus operators may bypass stops if necessary to maintain proper social distancing aboard the vehicle. Please use the rear door of the bus to board and exit.
