Weekend fun with METRO: Jan. 25-27



This weekend promises to be bookended by pleasant, sunny days and mild temperatures in the 60s, and on Saturday, any showers will come in the evening. That leaves lots of time to enjoy getting out and about with your family. We've got an award-winning comedian, a cast of puppets to transform classic children's books to life on the stage, and a giant auto show for everyone dreaming about new cars or simply curious about the latest auto gadgets.

Whatever you decide to do this weekend, be sure to take METRO. It's only $1.25 one way (and half price for students and seniors 65 plus). And, once you're on-board, you can text and Instagram all your friends without distraction. Check out our Google-powered Trip Planner to find the exact bus or train from your starting point.
