“Metrobus service is transitioning from the current “moderate” snow plan to a light snow plan, with the goal of having service restored on all routes — with detours — by 10:30 a.m. today
Under the light snow plan, all Metrobus routes are in service. However, snow detours will continue in effect as shown on Metro’s website to keep buses away from hilly terrain, narrow streets and other problem areas. Riders are encouraged to check the webpage below and plan to board their bus outside of the detour zones:
Metro will alert riders on a route-by-route basis through MetroAlerts (email and text message) and Twitter as detours are cancelled and normal routing is restored. Metro is also advising bus riders of the potential for delays in service dued to traffic and road conditions. Customers can use NextBus for real-time arrival information to minimize their wait time.
MetroAccess service (for riders with disabilities) will be restored at noon today. The MetroAccess call center is open to assist customers with rescheduling their trips.
Metrorail is open and operating on a regular weekday schedule.”
