Service Detours

Bus taking detour in Cincinnati.

Detours and service changes are a normal part of any dynamic transit system. Metro uses the detours when construction, traffic or inclement weather prevents us from following our regular route.

Metro detours are produced by Metro's Radio Communications Center employees who are in direct contact with Metro's bus operators and street supervisors.

For full detours, please see Metro's Detour Blog.
