Proposed Transit Improvements
Metro would like to thank the many customers, organizations, and citizens that provided feedback on the Proposed Transit Improvements during the month of December, 2014. The Public Comment period has now closed.
Metro held four Information Sessions, a Public Hearing, and offered online and written comment forms for submission between December 9th and 31st, 2014. That feedback is currently being processed and documented for review of the Metro Board of Directors. A decision on whether to implement the Proposed Transit Improvements will be made by the Board in the coming months.
The past several months have been exciting for Metro as we’ve been working to analyze the specific elements of the Proposed Transit Improvements. Through our public involvement process, you gave us numerous suggestions and ideas we’re incorporating into our proposed system redesign. We’ve been working 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, many routes will see extended night service until midnight or later, and all weekend routes will run at least once an hour!
However, some routes have been 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.
