Beginning Sept. 12, the Metro A Line and the Metro C Line will have as much service as they did prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Both light rail lines will also offer 10-minute service throughout the day.

Other changes that will take effect on Sept. 12 include:

  • Bus stops along Route 63 will be eliminated or relocated.
  • Route 54 will begin serving a new transit center at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Terminal 1.
  • Routes 7 and 68 will be extended.
  • A new route will replace routes 361 and 365 with four morning and four afternoon express trips.
