Reminder: Metro to run on Sunday/Holiday schedule on Memorial Day, May 25

This Memorial Day Weekend is a little different in terms of our bus and rail service.

Instead of traveling to the usual parades, pool parties and quick getaways, we’re asking you to stay safer at home and avoid gatherings. Remember that beaches, parks and trails are open for active use only. If you decide to head outdoors, wear a cloth face covering (and sunscreen) and maintain 6-feet distance from those not in your household.

If it’s some delicious barbecue you’re after, many local restaurants are offering barbecue meal packs for takeout and delivery to enjoy at home!

Metro will operate on Sunday/Holiday schedule on Monday, May 25. Bus riders please note: this means the additional weekday lines that have been running during our COVID-19 schedule will not run on Memorial Day Monday.

Metro’s current weekday service will resume on Tuesday, May 26.

  1. My husband takes the line 256 at 9am to work, it came and didn’t open the back door as usual, the driver open the front door and the passengers went in and was charge for the fare; my husband got off at his stop and took the next bus, and it was free as usual. When he told me this, I told him he wasn’t suppose to, should be free. Why was the passengers paying on the 256 and not the others, or why was the 256 not free like the others? Don’t understand that

    • Hi Trudy;

      Thank you for the heads up about this. Could you please email me at more info about when this occurred — time, date, location of bus stop and direction of travel? I can’t comment on this incident but our buses are currently boarding via the rear-door except for wheelchair users. As for fares, we are asking all riders to be in possession of a valid fare although not requiring they visit the farebox after boarding.

      Thank you,
