Bus Riders Face Delays Because Of NBA All-Star Activities

METRO says downtown bus riders can expect delays this weekend because of NBA All-Star activities.

The NBA All-Star game tips off at Toyota Center Sunday night, but activities are going on all weekend.  And METRO's Margaret O'Brien-Molina says that means detours for buses because of street closures next to the arena. 

"Routes that are going to be affected big time are the 36, 40, 80, and the 85. So whatever you do, just factor in some extra time to get to and from where you're going."  

O'Brien-Molina says the light rail line will operate as usual and that's a good way to get downtown if you're headed to the events. She says if you need more information you can go to RideMetro.org.
