As Mother Nature dusts the Tri-State with snowflakes, Metro advises customers that detours and delays are possible.

Updated service information can be found at the following outlets:

  • Metro’s website www.go-metro.com provides bus detour information and bus schedules
  • Metro’s Detour Hotline at (513) 632-7538 provides a recorded message, updated continuously from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. on severe winter weather days to give the most current bus detour information
  • Customers can follow Metro snow information on Twitter at Twitter.com/cincinnatimetro and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/GoMetro
  • Metro’s call center at (513) 621-4455 is open weekdays 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. for complete bus-riding information

Customers are advised to board Metro buses at the top or bottom of hills because buses cannot safely stop on snowy or icy peaks.
