Metro Redesign Background

For the past year, Metro Transit staff have been working on a complete redesign of Metro's service to make it more equitable, more efficient, and more effective at getting people where they need to go. It also prepares Metro service for the implementation of a bus rapid transit system (BRT) in 2024.

In addition, the redesign aims to address a number of concerns and complaints of Metro's current service that have been relayed through the years including:

  • Travel times and time spent waiting for a bus are too long
  • People of color transfer more than 2.5 times more than others, with trips twice as likely to take more than 45 minutes
  • Need for improved access to jobs

Metro has put forward a draft plan and has been collecting community input since February on what works and what might need to be changed.

Complete information on the redesign can be found here.

Metro staff presented an update on the proposed Metro Transit Network Redesign at Transportation Policy and Planning Board on Monday, May 16th and a Community Public Hearing on Thursday, May 19th. You can watch both [similar] videos here: Community Engagement.

Of note to District 19 residents is the proposed Amendment 6a.
