(KNSI) - Metro Bus will be honoring veterans with free rides this Veterans Day.

Veterans and active military can ride for free on Metro Bus services Monday, November 11th in honor of Veterans Day.

Customers must show their military ID before riding, and Dial-A-Ride customers are asked to notify Metro Bus of a veteran or active military status when scheduling rides.

Metro Bus services will close on other holidays, including Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. Metro Bus will close early on Christmas Eve by 6 P.M.

With the winter season approaching, Metro Bus is reminding customers to stay informed about weather-related closings or delays that may require extra planning. And with fewer hours of daylight, travelers waiting to catch the bus during dark hours should consider increasing their visibility by wearing bright or reflective clothing, staying in well-lit areas, or carrying a small flashlight.

Throughout the winter season, notifications about route detours will be posted on the Metro Bus Facebook and Twitter accounts. Click here for more details.
