For the upcoming school year, MET Transit will not operate Routes T1-Castlerock, T2-Riverside, or T4-Lewis and Clark due to continued staffing shortages of qualified transit operators. These Tripper routes provide service to areas served by other bus routes and were identified as the routes for suspension.
***Route T3-Will James will continue to run through the school year due to limited service available to reach Will James Middle School.***
Students who would normally use the above routes can use the alternate routes listed below:
**T1-Castlerock: Students who travel to Castlerock Middle School and Skyview Highschool should utilize Routes 14-Alkali (AM Only), 15-Hilltop (PM Only), 16-Main, and 17-Bench.
**T2-Riverside: Students traveling to Riverside Middle School should utilize 9-Central, 10-Southside, or 19-The Loop.
**T4-Lewis and Clark: Students traveling to Lewis and Clark Middle School should utilize 3-Crosstown, 5A-Grand, 5B-Grand, or 7-Broadwater.
Students should keep in mind that a transfer between buses may be necessary to make their daily trips.
If a student or parent needs assistance in determining what bus to ride at what time, they should contact the MET at 406-657-8218 or via email at email@example.com.
Letters are being mailed from SD2 to all students at the affected schools. Please reach out if you need help with trip planning at any time!
