Location: Virtual

Routes + Schedules

One of the most important aspects of our transit system is determining the amount of bus service on each route. Should it arrive every 15 minutes or every 30 minutes? Should it operate on evenings and weekends? What tradeoffs are necessary within Metro’s current budget and operational capacity, and how might this change in the future? We will discuss these questions and ideas.

This meeting content will be offered at two virtual meetings:

  • Wednesday, November 17 – 10:30-11:30 a.m.
  • Saturday, November 20 – 2-3 p.m.

This meeting will begin with a brief presentation from Metro staff, including several polling questions, the option for chat comments, and concluding with an open question and answer session. The meeting will last about 45 minutes, and a recording will be available on our website.
