Engagement activities for Metro Transit projects were put on hold earlier this year due to COVID-19. That gave Metro Transit staff the time to analyze the information gathered last year through public engagement and to identify potential Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors. We also spent the month of August listening to our customers and communities near our core routes and learning how this year has changed their transit needs and priorities. The information gathered will inform near-term decisions, long-term plans, and future public engagement efforts including how community is engaged in the next steps of Network Next.
Metro Transit is now resuming community engagement on Network Next to select and prioritize the next Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) lines – the METRO F, G, and H lines. The process of planning improvements to the regular local and express bus network and other system improvements should resume in 2021.
Get involved and take our survey! Your responses contribute directly to our ongoing planning efforts for expanded Bus Rapid Transit in your community. Survey closes Friday, Oct. 9.
