Emergency Snow Network
During severe winter weather, Metro may activate its Emergency Snow Network (ESN), a reduced network of bus routes and chained shuttles designed to serve the most riders in the safest way possible. Metro's ESN focuses bus service on main roadways that will be plowed and de-iced and avoids steep hills.
Metro will announce its intended activation of the ESN one day in advance. The ESN remains in effect for an entire service day, even if conditions improve.
Access riders should contact the call center on days with snow or icy conditions. The call center’s phone system will provide special announcements when service is either disrupted or suspended. Access vehicles may still be available for emergency services such as life sustaining trips.
Vanpool drivers – be ready for winter weather road conditions! Discuss a snow and alternate commute plan with your group. Don't operate your vanpool in unsafe or unfamiliar conditions—if you don't have to drive in icy or snowy conditions, don't.
Please review your vanpool emergency procedures and monitor regional weather advisories and road conditions. Quick note: weather can change in a flash – so please monitor weather early and often, especially before those icy mornings or during the day before that long drive home.
