In the meantime, the Metropolitan Council is asking customers to be patient, as the service will be far behind schedule once things get up and running. They released a statement Monday afternoon:
“Metro Mobility, and the Metropolitan Council, which oversees the service, sincerely apologize to customers for the inconvenience and thank them for their patience. We are still working to determine what caused our software issues and expecting that some customers will experience delays as drivers try to get back on schedule. But we want to assure customers that no one will be left stranded. Just like on a snow day, customers who got a ride to their destination will be picked up from their location and returned home.”MORE NEWS: What Is ‘Wordle’? And Why Is It So Popular?
