Metro buses are currently using regular routes, but some routes are running with delays after a smooth morning rush hour.
Out of 117 buses on the road at this time, 17 buses are running 7 – 10 minutes behind schedule. Roads are snow covered and the snow is limiting visibility.
As road conditions get worse, delays may increase. The safety of customers and bus operators is the priority during the storm, a spokesman said.
Metro bus customers can contact the Regional Call Center at 816-221-0660 to learn where their bus is and if the snow reroute plan is in effect. Details of the emergency snow reroute plan are available at http://www.kcata.org.
Customers can track their buses using our live bus-tracking tool, WebWatch, at http://www.kcata.org/maps_schedules/webwatch/. A mobile bus tracker is available at http://www.itsab.us/tracker/.
The Metro’s snow trucks are currently plowing and treating roads throughout the Metro service area.
Share-A-Fare In Phase A

Share-A-Fare is a transportation program that provides alternate transportation to persons whose disability prevents them from using the regular fixed-route bus service.
