Metro Bus and Rail has temporarily suspended fare collection to aid social distancing


Covid19 Update - Corona Virus

Niagara Falls and Portage Road Transportation Centers are closed to aid social distancing. Bus service to both facilities continues as scheduled.

Metro Bus and Rail has temporarily suspended fare collection to aid social distancing. This includes bus routes, paratransit service and Metro Rail. Because there is no fare collection, passengers should use rear doors to board and exit buses. Those who have special needs or mobility issues may still use front doors. 

Rear Door Boarding

These measures will maximize social distancing, help protect employees and riders, and provide more opportunities to clean and disinfect buses and rail cars. Metro continues to follow and promote the advice coming from state and local health care partners and will continue to keep passengers and employs safe during this time of concern.

Metro Bus and Rail has greatly increased cleaning schedules. Buses, rail cars, rail stations and other locations are now subject to deep-cleaning liquid, containing hospital-grade sanitizing agents. Bus operators have access to disposable gloves and sanitizing wipes to do additional cleaning. Metro also has put cleaners in the field to sanitize buses multiple times throughout the day.
