Metro Transit announced this week it is suspending bus and light rail services between 11 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Riders are strongly encouraged to practice social distancing and limit rides to day and early evening trips and only for essentials such as food or medicine.
Public transit systems nationwide have curtailed services due to the pandemic amid the need to sanitize vehicles and maintain rider safety. Metro Transit ridership is often lowest in the late evening and early morning hours, which reduces the impact of limited hours on users. There is no indication from Metro Transit when services will transition back to normal hours of operation.
