Plan for severe weather operations

In the event of inclement weather, all Trinity Metro bus routes will run on a Saturday schedule. Full service details follow.

All normal Saturday services will operate as scheduled with the following exceptions:

  • There will be no service on Molly the Trolley.
  • There will be no service on The Dash.
  • Routes 23 and 67 may operate later in the day if Tarrant County College classes begin later in the morning depending if sufficient melting occurs and resources are available.

Note that the following routes do not have normal Saturday service, 23, 30, 111, Burnett Plaza Lunch Line, Express Routes 61, 63, 65, 66 & 67.  These routes will not operate during Severe Winter Weather.

Routing/Detours

To the extent possible, Operations will try to follow regular routes.  It is not unusual for some portion of the service area to experience icy conditions while another portion is clear.  Operations supervisors will survey the situation and determine if it is safe to use regular routing.  However, there are many segments of routes that may be considered too hazardous to traverse in icy conditions and staff have proactively worked out detours to avoid them.  Most hazards involve steep slopes and bridges, however, other hazards may include areas that remain shaded thus slowing the ice melt, narrow residential streets with on-street parking, or even shallow slopes with stops where there is insufficient traction to overcome both gravity and inertia.  Detours are described below.
