Madison Metro to Limit Riders to 15 per Bus


Effective 3/24:

Riders must enter and exit through the rear doors of the bus. Passengers in wheelchairs can continue to board through the front doors. This new required practice will continue until April 20. (This is subject to change as needed to address COVID-19.)

 **Fares will not be collected.**

 Complete info:


Starting Wednesday, March 18, capacity on Metro Transit buses will be limited to 15 passengers plus the driver. If you are a rider who is at a high risk of severe illness, please avoid using public transit.  High risk individuals include people 60 years or older, people with underlying health conditions, people with weakened immune systems, and women who are pregnant. 

If your normal bus is full, please call City Planning at 608-825-1107 or email and the City will make arrangements to have another bus will be dispatched to you.

In addition, starting Monday, March 23, Metro Transit will be reducing service to follow Saturday schedules 7 days per week, with the addition of commuter service on weekdays - including Sun Prairie’s Route 23.  This service modification will continue until further notice.  

Finally, Metro will also be selectively increasing the number of buses on routes with high ridership in order to meet the demand while still maintaining a max capacity of 15 riders per bus.
