Trains will run every 30 minutes for the duration of the disruption. Passengers should not experience any significant delays.

The first two trains of the day, which depart from North Side Station at 3:20 a.m. and from Mercantile Center Station at 3:31 a.m., will be canceled.

New transit volunteer program

Anyone looking for more opportunities to spend time outdoors has a new option – volunteer to be a transit ambassador for Trinity Metro. As an extension of the agency’s ENVOY team, volunteers work alongside employees to help transit customers by providing information and making sure they have a positive transit experience.

Detra Whitmore, vice president of customer experience, said the volunteer program is a win-win for everyone.

“We have so many transit enthusiasts who are looking for a way to help,” Whitmore said. “Volunteering as an ENVOY is a perfect way for them to participate – and they are providing additional assistance for our customers.”

Volunteers have a variety of opportunities to choose from, including conducting customer surveys, providing travel training, working job fairs or other community events, or greeting customers at rail stations or transfer centers – to name a few.

“Shifts are flexible,” Whitmore said. “We work around the volunteers’ schedule to find a good fit. This is a great opportunity for individuals or a group service project.”
