Metro Transit announced Thursday that nightly light rail service will be suspended starting Saturday.

According to a release, light rail service will be suspended between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. in order to address "operational changes and to limit the spread of COVID-19."

Light rail trains that begin trips prior to 9 p.m. will complete their routes and trips typically scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. or later will not operate, according to Metro Transit. Morning routes will not take place until 6 a.m.

The exception to this new rule is the Metro Blue Line airport shuttle that operates overnight between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 stations.
