CINCINNATI – Metro and Access will operate on a regular schedule on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 17. Metro telephone information is open, but Metro administrative offices and the sales office are closed for the day.

Metro is on a regular schedule because many businesses are open and the reduced level of holiday service would make it difficult or impossible for many people to get to work. Metro's fare is the same every day.

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Metro's bus dedicated to Rosa Parks will participate in the 36th Annual Commemorative March, sponsored by the Martin Luther King, Jr. Coalition of Greater Cincinnati on Monday. The march is open to the public and begins at the Freedom Center at 10:30 a.m., proceeds to Fountain Square, and on to Music Hall.

Metro will also be providing fliers featuring excerpts from the famous "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Government Square information booth at the corner of Fifth and Walnut streets downtown on Martin Luther King Jr. Day from 2 - 6 p.m., in honor of the holiday. The fliers are free to the public, and will also be available in Metro's Sales Office on Friday, Jan. 14.

For complete bus information, call Metro at 621-4455, weekdays 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. or visit www.go-metro.com.

Metro is a non-profit, tax-funded public service of the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority, providing more than 19 million rides per year.
