Beginning Tuesday, January 29, 2019 through Friday, February 1, 2019, METRO is offering free fares on all services, including line-service, Northcoast Express, SCAT, and Call-A-Bus.

The Weather Channel has warned that the coldest arctic outbreak in at least 20 years is expected this week in parts of the Midwest. With temperatures so low, METRO invites members of the community to utilize its services for a dependable mode of transportation.

“We do not cancel operations; this is transportation people can rely on. We run 359 days a year, in all weather conditions,” said METRO Executive Director Dawn Distler. “We want to make the boarding process as easy as possible for folks coming in from the cold, so we decided to waive fares during the arctic blast. It was an easy decision to make.”

First-time riders can call METRO at 330-762-0341, visit our schedule page, or use Google Transit to plan your trip.
