Transit trip updates
For the scheduled (‘s’) or predicted departure times, and other information about transit service at your stop,

Transit service may be interrupted by weather, events or activities
In areas where there are crowds, traffic, weather or events disrupting normal travel patterns, transit riders are advised to be aware of conditions in their immediate area, such as street closures or detours.

Be prepared for delays, or to make revisions to travel plans, such as using a different bus stop, depending on specific circumstances. Be prepared for unexpectedly revised traffic or routing, and for delays in transit service. Transit riders are encouraged to know the alternate routes or stops that may be near their starting points and destinations.

Depending on the time and the nature of such events, Metro may not be able to provide real-time information or service updates via email or text.  Event start and end times and other details may be subject to change.
