Metro Transit in Minneapolis has suspended service through Sunday, May 31, 2020.

Metro Transit in Minneapolis has suspended nearly all service through Sunday, May 31. The suspension stems from the unrest of three consecutive nights protesting the death of George Floyd. Metro Transit’s website has the following statement:

Out of concern for the safety of our customers and employees, Metro Transit will suspend all bus and light rail service through the weekend. This suspension includes all Metro Transit bus, light rail, and Northstar service with one exception.

“METRO Blue Line airport shuttle service will continue to operate between Terminals 1 and 2 and Fort Snelling. This service is for essential trips only with face covering and social distancing protocol still in effect.   Metro Mobility is continuing to operate where it is safe to do so throughout the service area. If you have questions, contact the Metro Mobility Service Center at 651-602-1111 or [email protected].

“As the situation remains fluid, this suspension will be re-evaluated as events
progress.”
