The bus service suspension on January 11, 2023, due to the ice storm is good reminder why it is important to sign up for Metro Transit's rider alert email and text notifications. The Metro Transit alerts are best for urgent real-time notifications of bus service delays, detours, suspensions, and cancellations. The alerts can be route specific or for the entire system.
Maple Grove Transit contracts with Metro Transit for the Express bus operations, so Maple Grove routes are included in their notifications. Therefore, if Metro Transit suspends or cancels service for its entire system, this includes the Maple Grove Transit Express routes.
