METRO Riders Cautioned to Prepare for Severe Weather Tues. PM and Wed. AM 

The National Weather Service (NWS) is working together with area emergency officials and METRO to get a good handle on what appears to be a very bad storm. 

METRO will continue to offer transit services as long as it can safely do so. Patrons are advised, however, that the Authority operates under the same traffic and weather conditions as the general public so delays in schedule may be experienced. Rodeo goers are asked to monitor tonight's weather as well as METRO'a Twitter and Facebook pages for timely information regarding their commutes.
