METS launching Sunday service, new fares

Dec 16, 2016

You’ll soon be able to ride a METS bus on Sunday.

The Metropolitan Evansville Transit System is preparing to implement Sunday bus service, more night service, and new bus fares starting January 2nd.

A news release from Mayor Lloyd Winnecke’s office says bus fares for adult passengers will drop from $1.00 to 75-cents, student fares will decrease from 75-to-50 cents, elderly and disabled fares will change from 50-to-35 cents, and METS Mobility Service will drop from $2 to $1.50 per ride

But METS says bus transfers will be eliminated.

Sunday bus service will be available on five routes from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Night service will be expanded to the Lynch-Walnut route Monday through Saturday.

Changes also include combining the Mary “A” and Howell routes. And “A” buses on the Lincoln, Riverside, Covert, and Washington routes will not run between 10:45 and 12:45 each day.

METS urges riders to use the DoubleMap tracking system, which shows current bus locations on a smart phone in real time.
