All scheduled METROLift trips for Wednesday will be canceled. Once conditions are deemed safe and METROLift services start, customers can call in for same day transportation for essential trips.  


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
