Shuttle Buses to be Provided Along Sections of Red, Green and Purple Rail Lines
as Crews Work to Restore Power

A power system failure along the METRORail Red Line has resulted in an unscheduled service interruption beginning at the start of service Friday, Sept. 22.  The service interruption also impacts portions of the Green and Purple Lines downtown.

Bus shuttles will be provided for passengers along the Red Line between Burnett Transit Center and the Downtown Transit Center.  Along the Green and Purple Lines, bus shuttles will be provided between EaDo/Stadium and Theatre Stations.

The power system failure was discovered Thursday, Sept. 21 at 5:45 p.m.  Bus shuttles were put in place along portions of all three lines to transport customers.  Crews immediately began working to resolve the issue.

Riders are asked to monitor METRO Twitter and Facebook pages for timely information regarding transit service. METRO also offers real-time information through its service alerts system.  METRO 's Customer Care team is available at 713-635-4000.

Customers should expect delays as we work to restore normal service.  We appreciate your patience.
