Stop/Station Number

A Stop/Station Number (#) is a unique identification number for each stop or station within the Metro system. By knowing your Stop or Station Number, you can access arrival information directly without navigating through multiple lines, etc.

We're making plans to place these numbers on our Bus Stop signs on the street. In the meantime, there are many ways to find your Stop or Station Number online. Once you find your Stop or Station Number(s), keep them in a convenient place so you can take them with you on your trips.

Find by Calling 511

Call 511 and say “Look-up a stop number”. Then follow the prompts. You’ll need to know your Metro bus or rail line, direction and stop name (intersection). Then 511 will tell you the stop or station number, as well as the next three arrival times for that line.
