Metro Transit Taking Steps to Address COVID-19

Return to Blog

The safety of our passengers and team members is our top priority during this challenging time. In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have implemented a stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocol for MetroBus, MetroLink and Metro Call-A-Ride, and have incorporated extra cleaning and disinfecting efforts at our transit centers.


Updated 3/20/2020

Metro is making several adjustments to transit services and operations for the safety of transit riders and Metro employees, and to minimize the spread of COVID-19 through the community.

Beginning Monday, March 23, Metro Transit will begin operating a modified weekend schedule seven days a week until further notice. In addition, Metro is temporarily waiving fare enforcement of cash fares on MetroBus and Metro Call-A-Ride. Fare enforcement will continue on MetroLink.

Metro Transit Addressing Coronavirus What We Are Doing

The cleaning spray and liquids are CDC-approved to fight COVID-19. Please keep in mind though as soon as someone touches one of the surfaces, it is no longer disinfected. We have set up several hand-washing stations for you and other riders to use on the system in some of the areas where restrooms aren’t readily available.

We’re In This Together

We are keeping a close eye on COVID-19 developments and are communicating with local, regional and state health officials. However, we also need your help to prevent the spread of the coronavirus and keep everyone safe – it really is a team effort.

Here are some actions you can take to slow the spread of coronavirus:

At this time, we do not plan on reducing service, and are committed to keeping the region moving by getting people to jobs, stores and essential services. Riders will be notified of any disruptions to service through our social media pages and the Transit App.
