Sun Metro Hosts Public Meetings for New Service Modifications

Sun Metro invites the public to two community meetings to learn more about changes to be implemented this fall to better meet the demand for ridership.

The service modifications will take effect on Sunday, November 21, 2021.

“The modifications focus on realigning underutilized routes, eliminating duplication of service, and expanding service into neighborhoods where we are experiencing a demand for service. Our goal is to provide continuous improvements to ensure our public transit system makes travel easy and convenient,” Sun Metro Managing Director Ellen Smyth said.

The community meetings will be held in the Sun Metro Transit Operations Center located at 10151 Montana Avenue on:

Monday, October 18, 2021

11 a.m. AND 6 p.m.

Members of the community who cannot attend in person may get service modification details by calling the Customer Service Center at (915) 212-3333 during regular business hours.
