Cuts Coming to Metrobus


The City of St. John's has announced cuts to Metrobus.


Council asked all city departments to find savings in an effort to avoid raising the mill rate.


Metrobus has significantly lower ridership rates since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this looks to continue well into 2021 according to the City.


As a result, the City will defer its planned Frequent Transit Network on core routes until September 2021; and, following a slightly modified reduced-service summer schedule until the end of August.
