Snow Storm Surge: What to expect
 
METRO RTA prioritizes our passengers' and team member's safety above everything.
 
Starting late Wednesday, February 2nd, 2022 through Friday, February 4th, 2022 Summit and surrounding counties are expected to experience a significant snow and ice surge.
 
If the inclement weather pattern persists, the following is possible:
  • Fixed-route delays and/or cancellations of routes and times are probable.
  • ADA services will run, as scheduled, but delays are likely.
  • Northcoast Express (NCX) may not be in service due to weather issues.
  • The DASH service could be suspended.
  • METRO RTA may have to prioritize Demand Response (SCAT) services. This means medically necessary services will be the top priority, as long as safety measures are able to be adhered to during all phases of the trip.
  • If you are using METRO's Demand Response services (SCAT/Call-A-Bus/METRO Connect/FlexRide) the bus operator must be able to access the properties and side streets where pick-up and drop-off locations may be located. If our vehicle is unable to safely access the street, parking lot, or property the trip may be canceled.
  • If you use METRO for any service during this time, please understand your later trips may not be running, could be canceled, or could be running significantly late.
 
Call 330.762.0341 before you head out or go to yourbus.org to track your fixed-route bus.
