Metrobus running normal schedule; delays possible

5:35 a.m. UPDATE: This just in from Metro:

"Safety is our #1 priority. Although Metrobus is operating normal service, customers should expect delays due to snow and ice, and depending upon conditions, some buses may have to operate on regional snow emergency routes. This is subject to change. "

Metrorail appears to be functioning normally.

Original Post: Metro decided to limit its Metrobus service Tuesday night to snow emergency routes only. According to a statement from the agency, buses are traveling only on passable main roadways as snow falls throughoutt the region. Officials anticipate that there will be limited Metrobus service for the morning commute, but will adjust service as conditions permit.

The statement also said it's possible MetroAccess, a transit service for the elderly and the disabled, would be reduced if conditions worsened.

Metro rail service was operating normally and officials anticipated beginning rail service at the usually 5 a.m. weekday start time.
