Despite the coming extreme cold weather, Metro Transit expects to operate its regularly scheduled weekday service at the beginning of the day on Monday, January 6, according to a release.
Officials say regular maintenance inspections are performed on Metro’s entire bus fleet throughout the year. As part of these inspections, preparations for cold weather are made each fall so that the fleet is fully ready when extreme winter weather finally hits.
According to Metro Transit Maintenance Manager Jeff Butler, “All of our vehicles are designed for this type of weather and stored indoors overnight. We don’t expect anything out of the ordinary on Monday. If we were to experience any difficulty related to the weather, we are ready to take care of the situation immediately.”
