Upcoming Transit Network Redesign Community Meeting

February 21, 2022 1:14 PM

Greetings friends and neighbors,

As you are likely aware, Madison Metro, our city's public transportation, will be undergoing a restructure of service in 2023. The recently released Transit Network Redesign Draft Plan focuses on fewer routes that are more direct and frequent, while providing coverage where it is needed most.

improving transit together

There are several opportunities to learn more about the plan, provide feedback and/or review resources: 

If you visit the webpage you will notice some districts already have concentrated meetings set up. Alders Lemmer (D3), Foster (D15), Halverson (D17) and myself are finalizing dates to host a joint meeting about the proposed east side impacts of the current draft, to occur in March. I will write an update once the dates are finalized. Additionally, if any group, apartment complex, etc. would like to set up their own meeting with Metro staff, requests can be made by calling (608) 266-4466 or emailing
