Archived News: This news release is more than one year old and may include outdated information.

Starting Sunday, August 23, Metro will increase its level of service.

Due to budget constraints and staffing limitations, Metro is not able to return to the same level of service that was provided earlier in the year. However, as businesses and college campuses make plans to open in the fall, Metro must increase its current service level to accommodate as many riders as possible while its reduced bus capacity limits (20 riders per bus) are still in effect.

Future Public Hearing
Due to the tight timeline and overall uncertainty of the pandemic, it was not possible to hold a public hearing before making these service increases. A public hearing will be scheduled in the fall for riders to give input on the increases put into place. Depending on budget abilities and the current effects of Covid-19 at that time, route adjustments based on public comments may be made in early 2021.

Passengers are encouraged to provide feedback on this updated service. All feedback will be reviewed and taken into account during the public hearing process. Feedback can be submitted by filling out an online form at or contacting Metro's customer service center at (608) 266-4466 or
