Transit services will be disrupted during a special event Sunday afternoon and evening.

Several Metrorail and Metromover stations will need to stop service intermittently, the county announced Saturday. Metrobus service might also be impacted because of the event. Officials did not say which event they were talking about, and they did not respond to phone calls or emails Saturday.

The Department of Transportation and Public Works is asking passengers to be patient and plan accordingly as operations will cease at times, with service discontinued for as long as 30 minutes.

Metrorail riders who plan to use the Orange Line to go to Miami International Airport are encouraged to leave early.

To be notified of transit service disruptions, transit riders can register to receive Rider Alerts. In the event of a service disruption or delay, transit users will receive a message with details on the device of their choice. Transit users can also follow the Department of Transportation and Public Works on its Transit Twitter account for service updates.

In addition, transit riders can call 305-891-3131, Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
