Since 13 December 2020, eight central Frankfurt bus routes have been running as "Metro bus routes" every weekday around the clock at frequent intervals. On Sunday, 12 December, another Metro bus line will be added: the previous bus line 46 will become the Metro bus line M46.

Metro bus routes: 24-hour operation and a "promise of regular service"

The Metro bus routes M32, M34, M36, M43, M46, M55, M60 and M72/M73 run around the clock every day of the week, and they run quite frequently: minimum every ten minutes during the day, every quarter-hour on Sundays and public holidays, and every half hour at night. Apart from a few minor exceptions, these frequencies represent the basic minimum service on the Metro bus routes. Depending on passenger volume, the buses run even more frequently.
