Route 4 Now Serving Regency

Starting Sunday, November 15, all westbound trips on Route 4 will serve Regency Circle before entering the Westroads Transit Center, providing new transit access for destinations in the area. Eastbound trips on Route 4 will not serve Regency, instead continuing north on 102nd Street to Maple. Customers at Westroads TC wanting to reach the Regency area should board Route 4 at a new bus stop located at the southwest corner of 102nd & Nicholas.

Route 13 Returning to Pre-COVID Schedule

Starting Monday, November 16, buses will return to a weekday schedule on Route 13, with service every 15 minutes during rush hour along 13th Street. Route 13 had been operating a Saturday schedule on Weekdays since March, but the more frequent schedule will help riders along 13th Street connect with ORBT and other routes.

Route 92 Temporary Changes

Starting Wednesday, November 18, Metro will temporarily modify Route 92 to align with the launch of ORBT and respond to changing ridership patterns during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Route 92 will serve the Westroads Transit Center instead of continuing downtown, offering immediate connections with ORBT for service along Dodge Street. All trips will travel westbound when serving the First National Bank Park & Ride near 144th & Dodge, and buses will no longer travel eastbound on FNB Parkway or serve California Street between 132nd and 137th Streets. The daily number of trips will increase to 10 per weekday, up from four trips offered currently.
