Driver shortage brings longer-term cuts to Metro Transit bus service


August 1, 2018

Metro Transit officials facing a worsening driver shortage abruptly cut bus service Tuesday in a move to stabilize service across the Twin Cities — for now.

By canceling 67 trips across 40 routes for the foreseeable future — about 1 percent of the agency’s daily operations — Metro Transit can staff the rest of its other runs and dramatically reduce the number of missed trips, said spokesman Howie Padilla. The agency has operated 99 percent of its runs, he said, but fallen short of its goal of 100 percent.
