About the process

MetroNEXT is a yearlong planning & public involvement initiative by Metro Transit to guide and prioritize future public transportation improvements for the Omaha region. The process will result in the MetroNEXT Plan, a multi-year transit enhancement strategy for the agency. Throughout the MetroNEXT process, we will consider:

  • More frequent bus arrivals
  • Better bus stops, including passenger shelters and route information
  • Future ORBT lines
  • New service types to connect the region
  • Potential service expansion
