Metro has updated its Rules of Conduct and Inappropriate Conduct/Transit Exclusion Procedure.
Specifically, Metro's weapons policy has been updated to reflect the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court Decision that now allows concealed weapons on buses.
frequently asked questions
What is Metro’s policy regarding weapons on buses?
Metro’s policy bans all weapons on buses unless allowed by state law. In Wisconsin Carry, Inc. v. City of Madison, the Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled that Metro may no longer ban weapons that state law specifically allows in vehicles, such as firearms carried by someone licensed under the state’s concealed carry statute. If you have questions about this law, or whether you are personally allowed to bring a weapon on the bus, Metro encourages you to consult an attorney.
This law applies to all vehicles owned by Metro Transit. This would include Metro’s paratransit vans.
Metro’s contracted paratransit service providers are private companies. As private companies they are allowed to set their own polices. A decision to ban weapons would be up to that company.
