Metro will reduce service to 26 “lifeline” bus routes and customers should expect wait times of thirty minutes between trains for the weekend.

Metro has been limiting service to slow the spread of COVID-19, and asked riders again to only use it for essential trips, defined as trips by “medical providers and hospital staff, first responders, critical government functions, individuals involved in helping the community respond to COVID-19, grocery and pharmacy trips, among others.”
