Metro’s first round of unprecedented service cuts go into effect Sept. 27, and riders are strongly encouraged to use the next week to prepare for changes to dozens of routes and make alternate travel plans as needed.

Service will be canceled on 28 routes and reduced or revised on another 13 routes. As a result, riders will see about 250 closed bus stops, nearly 1,200 changed bus stop signs and 800 posted rider alerts.

Information for riders
Summary information for riders is available in orange Rider Alert brochures on buses and at transit information hubs, as well as on the Metro website. By entering a date after Sept. 27 in Metro’s online trip planner, riders can see what alternatives are available as routes are canceled or revised. New orange timetables also are available. Metro customer service is providing trip planning help at 206-553-3000.
