Additional Hours of Metro Bus Service Starts Monday, June 8, 2020

Kalamazoo, MI – Additional hours for Metro’s fixed route buses will start on Monday, June 8.  Fixed route buses will operate hourly from 6:15 am to 10:15 pm Monday through Saturday.  Additional half hour service will be available on Route 1-Westnedge, 2-Portage, 9-Gull, and 14-West Main Monday through Friday until 6:38 pm.  Sunday bus service will resume operation on June 14 from 9:15 am to 5:15 pm.

Metro Connect will continue to provide curb-to-curb service 6:00 am to 12:15 am Monday through Friday, 6:00 am to 10:15 pm Saturday and Sunday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  For work trips needing transportation after 10:15 pm weekdays when the fixed route system is not operating, riders can call Metro Connect at (269) 350-2970 to schedule rides.  Please be aware that there is limited availability.  

In order to continue to protect the community from the spread of the coronavirus after the Stay at Home Order has been lifted for the State of Michigan, riders must follow the new guidelines on all Metro vehicles:

  • A face covering must be worn by passengers during the entire trip on the bus.  A covering can include a mask, scarf, or bandana, as long as it covers the nose and mouth.  If a covering is not used, a passenger cannot board the bus. 

 

  • Board at the rear door of the bus.  No bus fare is required at this time.

 

  • Use the hand sanitizer when boarding to help keep Metro vehicles clean.  Daily cleaning continues to take place on all Metro vehicles.

 

  • Sit in marked seats only and use Metro for essential trips.  Trips should be consolidated in order to minimize the use of public transportation at this time.

 

The public transportation system resumed hourly bus service to the community from 6:15 am to 6:15 pm Monday through Saturday on May 18 with new guidelines for riding as a result of COVID-19.  The fixed route buses were previously suspended from April 2 to May 17.  The new guidelines for riding the bus help slow the spread of the coronavirus in the community and protect vulnerable populations in Kalamazoo County. 

Riders should review the revised schedules as times and days of service are still limited at this time.  Specific route information including modified schedules and regular updates on Metro’s public transportation service is available at www.kmetro.com or by calling (269) 337-8222.  Additional updates are also available on Facebook at Metro Transit.

The CCTA/KCTA Meeting for September 28, 2020 has been CANCELED.  And the next meeting in compliance with Executive Order 2020-160 and temporary suspension of the Open Meetings Act, the October 12, 2020 CCTA/KCTA meeting will be held electronically via Zoom.  Instructions will be available on the CCTA/KCTA web packet prior to the meeting.
