Currently MET is operating both our regular Fixed Route and Paratransit service as normal. Our service is important so that healthcare workers, first responders or anyone else conducting essential business or needing essential services can get to their destination.

While everyone continues through these unprecedented times, we ask that you respect our drivers and passengers to observe social distancing while on the bus and wear a mask, to protect yourself and others by not spreading this virus. MET has taken appropriate precautions to protect our employees and customers by cleaning and disinfecting the buses more frequently, installing barriers for our drivers and restricting the seating capacity on the bus.

If you must ride the bus for your essential trip, please wash or sanitize your hands before and after your ride. If the driver offers you a mask to wear, please accept it and stay healthy. We are all in this together. Thank you. - David Sturch, General Manager Metropolitan Transit Authority.
