Capital Metro is preparing for a transit strike by some members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1091 (ATU 1091) against McDonald Transit, which operates approximately 70 percent of Capital Metro’s fixed-route bus service.
We cannot predict when or if a transit strike may occur; however, in the event of a strike, Capital Metro is prepared to operate a modified level of transit service, concentrating operations on the busiest routes and those that serve major destinations such as hospitals, schools, the central business district, and areas with a high number of transit-dependent riders.
Capital Metro has developed contingency plans with its contractors that will keep as much transit service operating as possible should a strike occur, so we can minimize the impact to our customers.
Services that would NOT be affected by a strike include:
- MetroRail service
- MetroRail Connector service
- UT shuttles
- MetroAccess service
These services would run their normal, posted schedules.
