On Saturday, Sept. 11, 2021, bus shuttle service will be provided along a segment of METRORail's Purple Line to allow work crews to complete a rail improvement project. Transit service modifications will begin at the start of service and continue until 7 p.m.

Free two-way bus shuttles will replace train service between Eado/Stadium and Palm Center Transit Center stations during this period. Bus shuttles will run every 12 minutes or sooner. METRO staff and/or platform signage will direct riders to board at nearby bus shuttle stops. A list of shuttle stops can be found here.

Purple Line customers should allow additional travel time. METRO's TRIP App and Next Bus Arrival Texting service may not reflect accurate departure and arrival information during this time. Please monitor METRO's Twitter and Facebook pages for updates. METRO also offers real-time information through its service alerts system.

Customers may also contact METRO's Customer Service Center at 713-635-4000 if they have any questions or need trip planning information.
