Winter Weather Updates

Stormy Weather - METRO provides safe service during typical Maine weather conditions, but if the weather is severe, routes by be detoured or delayed. Please check this website for updates.

We Need Your Help!
Can you help us improve the accessibility of METRO bus stops?
We have more than 500 stops throughout our system, and it can be very challenging to keep them clear of snow after storms.
If you are available to help us dig out this winter, please visit Adopt-A-Stop for volunteer guidelines and information.

Thank you!!
