Schedule and information, effective March 28, 2022 - May 7, 2022
Route 1

METRO BREEZ provides express service between Portland, Yarmouth, Freeport, and Brunswick, with 14 roundtrips Monday - Friday. 

During this service reduction, four (4) southbound and three (3) northbound trips will not operate. Saturday service will not change.

From March 28, 2022 - May 7, 2022, the one-way fare for BREEZ will be lowered from $4 to $2 (Reduced fare lowered from $2 to $1). 

To provide additional service, BREEZ will also stop at all Route 1 stops between Washington Avenue and Thompson's Point, including along St. John Street and Mercy at the Fore.

Route 1 provides local service between Thompson's Point/PTC and Munjoy Hill/Eastern Prom with stops, app. every 1/4 mile, along Congress Street. During this time, METRO is reducing Route 1 service frequency from every 30 minutes to every 60 minutes. Many stops along Route 1 are also serviced by Route 7, 9, and BREEZ.

METRO is experiencing staffing shortages due to unforeseen short - and long-term bus operator leave of absences (mostly unrelated to the COVID-19 virus). METRO does not have sufficient bus operators to run all routes as scheduled. In early May, METRO plans to return to regular service for Route 1 and BREEZ and the Husky Line will change to its summer schedule.


Face masks are no longer required on public transit.
