(FOX19) - With snow flurries in the forecast, Cincinnati's Metro buses are ready.

Officials say detours and delays are possible throughout bus service routes.

Passengers can get updated Metro service information through several different outlets.

  • Metro's website provides detour information and schedules.
  • Metro's Detour Hotline offers a continuously updated recorded message on severe winter weather days for passengers - (513) 632-7538.
  • Passengers can follow Metro on Twitter and Facebook.
  • A call center is also available, open weekdays 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and offers complete bus-riding information - (513) 621-4455.

In addition, Metro advises passengers to board at the top or bottom of hills, because buses cannot stop safely on snowy or icy hills.
