Metro warns of possible disruptions to bus service

Passengers on public buses could experience service disruptions starting next week, the Greater Portland Metro said on Friday.

Starting Monday, the agency may reduce weekday bus service due to staff shortages, it said in a statement on Twitter.

Metro will only reduce service when necessary, and any changes will be based on the number of passengers affected, whether other services are available, and geographic and demographic fairness, he said.

Passengers should check Metro’s website every day after 5 p.m. to see what services the next day might be affected, he said. Metro operates buses in Portland, Westbrook and Falmouth and runs commuter routes to Gorham and Brunswick.

“To reiterate, we have a plan to reduce service only when necessary and only for the ride(s) needed on any given day,” the agency said. “We do not do this lightly and apologize in advance for any inconvenience.”
