METRO says riders can plan to take their regular routes on Wednesday morning.

•  Local bus routes, METRORail, METRORapid, Community Connector, Circulator, and Park & Ride services will operate their normal schedules.

•  The METRORail Red and Green lines will have normal operations.

•  For the METRORail Purple Line, METRO will provide free shuttle buses from the EADO/Stadium platform to the Palm Center Transit Center for the morning commute. Signs will direct riders to the shuttles and customers should allow for extra travel time.

•  METROLift customers can book trips as usual online through MACS-WEB or by calling 713-225-6716. 

METRO says riders should expect some detours and delays in the southeast region as work crews clear streets and restore power.
