METRO WINTER WEATHER REMINDER

Ditch the snow brush and the ice scraper and let Metro get you where you need to be this winter.
CINCINNATI — ’Tis the season for inclement weather. Ditch the snow brush and the ice scraper and let Metro get you where you need to be this winter.

In the event of significant ice or snow, Metro will still run service but detours and delays may be possible.

Updated service information will be provided through the following outlets:

  • Metro's Cincy EZAlerts is a free tool that allows riders to sign up to receive service alerts, including information about detours and service interruptions, by text or email for their route.
  • Real-time bus-tracking apps such as Transit App or Metro's desktop Transit Tracker (bustracker.go-metro.com) allow riders to track the location of their bus in real-time.
  • Metro's Detour Hotline (513-632-7538) provides an up-to-date recorded message on severe winter weather days that provides the most current bus detour information. The hotline is updated continuously from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Metro's website (go-metro.com) also provides bus detour information and bus schedules. 
  • Metro's call center (513-621-4455) is open weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. 
  • Cincy EZRide app is a free app on Android and iOS that makes it convenient for customers to purchase their fare on their smartphone, instead of digging through their wallet in gloves for exact change.

IMPORTANT:  Metro buses cannot stop safely on snowy or icy hills.  Customers should board at the top or bottom of hills.

Metro is a non-profit, tax-funded public service of the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, providing about 14 million rides per year.
