Public hearing scheduled

Complete Update to ALL Metro Routes Coming June 11!

Completely NEW Metro routes, maps and schedules go into effect on Sunday, June 11.

This will be a soft launch to see if there are any issues with how service operates on the road. Minor service tweaks and fixes will then roll out the last week in August.

Staff are putting schedules together and hope to have them available in February or March along with updated online trip planning data.

Call (608) 266-4466 or email mymetrobus@cityofmadison.com to receive early versions of map materials by mail. Map booklets will also be available soon at all Madison library locations.

Map links below reflect approved route maps approved by the Transportation Policy and Planning Board. Map presentation/designs are still being refined.
