Metro Seeking Public Feedback to Shape the Future of Metrobus
October 14 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Metro is going on the road with Better Bus, a new initiative to rethink, redesign, and revitalize bus service. In a bold inaugural effort to redesign the current bus network, Metro is holding events across the region to hear from customers and the community. Together with Metro, customers will shape the future of bus service.
The bus network redesign is just the beginning of a reimagined Metro that better serves the needs of customers, including the transition to zero-emission buses, construction of all-electric bus garages, priority bus lanes and signals, bus stop and shelter improvements, and ensures equity of service across communities.
This month, Metro launched the first phase of community-focused outreach, including approximately two dozen public events over five weeks and an online survey you can take here.
This is the first holistic redesign of the Metrobus network, which will mark its 50th anniversary in February. The redesign will work toward a bus network that is easier for customers to use and understand, and better align with where and when people want to travel.
The initiative will provide the opportunity to reassess regional travel patterns, how frequent buses come and create a more equitable transit network that serves our communities, such as the needs of essential workers. This includes coordinating service with bus priority investments—like bus lanes and transit signal priority—across the region.
Everyone in the region is encouraged to provide feedback online and at public events – regardless of whether they are an existing bus customer – to help shape a new, Better Bus network.
