Buses and trains are a common sight in the Twin Cities. But there's a lot more to what goes on at Metro Transit than the buses, light rail and commuter trains moving around the metro every day.
To showcase more of our activities and people, Metro Transit also posts to two photo-sharing sites – Instagram and Flickr. Like the Rider's Almanac blog, the photos are shared to take customers behind-the-scenes and to provide a fuller picture of our services, facilities and the people that keep the Twin Cities on the move.
Like all of our social media accounts, Instagram allows us to interact with members of the community in new ways. We encourage you to join the conversation by using the hashtag #MetroTransitMN or tagging us in the post. Be creative – we may feature one of your photos on our feed!
The Metro Transit Flickr page contains many of the same images but makes them available in full resolution and without significant edits or filters. These images are also organized into searchable sets. Photos posted on Flickr are available for republication by media outlets and the general public, according to our image and photo use policy.
While Instagram and Flickr are recent additions, we have already built a steady following on our other social media accounts – Twitter and Facebook. Our Facebook page has accumulated more than 40,000 "Likes" and we have around 24,000 followers on Twitter. Metro Transit's YouTube channel is also a great source for tips on using public transportation, transit safety and human-interest stories.
Wherever you chose to meet us – in transit or or online – we are grateful to be part of such an active and engaged community that cares about what we do. The interactions and feedback we receive are an important part of understanding our customer's needs and interests – and responding in the best way we can.
