Metro Transit Gathers Feedback

Metro Transit is embarking on an 18-month project, Network Now, that will help make decisions that best respond to the needs of the communities they serve.  

Over the coming months, Metro Transit will invite feedback on the values and principles they should use when making service decisions. They will also explain how we got to where we are today and the state of the current transit network.    

A list of prioritized service changes that could be made in the coming years – guided by the values and principles defined through Network Now engagement – will be completed in early 2024.    

As part of this work, there may also be the public process needed to discontinue routes that have been suspended for several years now.   

Thank you in advance for participating in this important conversation.
