Metro to allow water on trains, buses this week

Because of this week’s heat wave, Metro is allowing riders to carry and drink water on trains and buses.

The exception runs until the end of the service day on Friday and only applied to water, Metro says.

ABC7’s meteorologist Brian van de Graaf reports that afternoon highs this week will be in the mid to upper 90s through Friday. But it’ll feel near 110 degrees Thursday and Friday.
