Proposed Transit Improvements
The Metro Transit Board of Directors on Thursday, February 26th approved the largest changes to the bus network in several decades, altering 25 of Metro’s existing 33 bus lines. The changes will take effect on Sunday, May 31, 2015. The restructuring is a result of two years of planning and was shaped by over 4,000 customer surveys, 12 public meetings, a public hearing and more than 500 public comments.
Individual maps and schedules will be available online starting in mid-April.
Metro thanks the many customers, organizations, and citizens that provided feedback to shape the Transit Improvements.
Through our public involvement process, you gave us numerous suggestions and ideas we’ve incorporated into our system redesign. We’ve worked hard to address the top concerns of our customers, while at the same time staying within our guiding principles. As a reminder, here’s what our customers most commonly requested:
1. More service on weekends
2. End service later on weekdays
3. More frequent service on weekdays
In response, nine of Metro's main lines will receive extended hours past midnight, and all weekend routes will run at least once an hour!
However, some routes will be modified or discontinued in order to re-distribute resources to serve the most customers. Metro remains committed to implementing all improvements without raising customer fares or local taxes.
