Metro Revamps Local Bus Routes

Guest blog from Metro:

The back-to-school commute for students who take METRO has just gotten better.

METRO’s New Bus Network has revamped local bus routes to give our riders straighter, simpler routes that connect students to more places, more often.

METRO has three color-coded routes: the red routes, blue route and orange routes. On the frequent red routes, there are 22 routes that offer buses scheduled to arrive every 15 minutes or less, seven days a week.

On the blue routes, buses are scheduled to arrive every 30 minutes are less, seven days a week. On the coverage green routes, buses come every 60 minutes. Click here for bus route schedules.

And we have a cool tool that will tell you when the next two buses are arriving – in real time. Every bus stop has a unique bus stop ID number. You’ll find that ID number on the plastic infopost strapped to the bus stop pole. Text that ID number to a short code: 697 433. You’ll get a text back with the real-time arrival of the next two buses.

Students taking METRO will find a New Bus System that gets them where they want to go – from schools to movies to shopping centers. And remember, students travel for half price.
