Weekend fun with METRO: March 8-10


This weekend is the start of spring break for thousands of students, and the weather forecast promises warmer temperatures. We've got some exciting activities for the whole family – from an Xtreme Spring Break at the Children's Museum with a different fun event each day to a giant show on what your teens are probably looking forward to – sleeping.

Of course, the rodeo is still in full swing, and METRO has shuttles and extended train schedules to get you there and back safely.

Wherever you go, take METRO. You'll be able to catch up on texting or reading and avoid tolls and parking fees. Download the METRO TRIP App to plan a trip and see estimated bus arrival times on your mobile phone.
