METRO System: Some METRO lines use trains, others use buses. METRO lines are named by color (blue, red, green) rather than numbers.
Guaranteed Ride Home: Guaranteed Ride Home is Metro Transit's free program that gets you home from work or school if you have a family emergency or have to work late unexpectedly. To be eligible for this program, you must ride the train, bus, carpool, vanpool, bicycle or walk to work or school at least three times per week.
