2012 Outstanding Public Transportation System Achievement Award

Community Relations

In the past two years Madison’s downtown area was hit hard with traffic congestion due to inclement winter and political activity at the Capitol. Despite this congestion, Metro Transit helped keep people traveling throughout the community.

Metro also participated in various community events, such as green/sustainable energy expos. Metro has also partnered with many downtown businesses to promote its Commute Card program that encourages public transportation for their commute to work.

Additional community contributions include:

• Working with local art commission via promoting winning submissions of a high school poetry contest
• Assisting the Wisconsin Academy of Service Dogs
• Working closely with the Madison Police Department to provide video footage captured in the community by Metro buses to aid in investigations and help keep our community safe.
