Winter Weather Update at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023
As the recent winter weather persists, Trinity Metro is committed to the safety of our customers and employees. Service continues to be impacted by the current cold temperatures and icy roads and surfaces.
***ALL BUS AND ZIPZONE SERVICES WILL REMAIN SUSPENDED THROUGH THE REST OF THE DAY. TRINITY METRO ACCESS WILL CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SCHEDULED LIFE-SUSTAINING TRIPS BUT DELAYS ARE LIKELY. AN UPDATE ON SERVICE MODIFICATIONS EXPECTED TOMORROW WILL BE ANNOUNCED LATER TODAY.***
Customers who are traveling and impacted by winter weather service schedule changes are encouraged to arrange a guaranteed ride home by calling customer care at 817-215-8600. Specific trip inquiries and additional requests should also be directed to customer care as conditions are changing rapidly.
Trinity Metro TEXRail and Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will operate on regular weekday schedules today and are currently on time, but weather-related delays are possible.
Services at Fort Worth Central Station have also been impacted by the winter weather. Amtrak and Greyhound ticket counters and Subway restaurant are all closed. Trinity Metro staff remains on site and the building is open.
We continue to ask that everyone uses caution while traveling. Roadways, sidewalks and level surfaces such as train platforms, while treated can still be slippery.
When bus service resumes, it is likely that schedules will be operating on a winter weather schedule as outlined below.
Bus service will operate on an hourly schedule with the following exceptions:
- There will be no service on Molly the Trolley.
- There will be no service on The Dash.
- Routes 23 may operate later in the day if Tarrant County College classes begin later in the morning, depending on whether sufficient melting occurs and resources are available.
- Express Routes 61, 63, 65, or 66 will not operate during severe winter weather.
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.
