Improving Transit Equity
Due to years of underinvestment from federal and state partners, Metro has not been able to equitably serve the entire community.
Metro Transit staff are working on a complete network redesign to create a new system of bus routes that better serves the needs of all Madison area residents and businesses.
The network redesign process will reconfigure all of Madison’s bus routes to make them run faster, more frequently, and overall make them easier to use.
Before the onset of Covid-19, Metro’s service was mainly oriented towards peak hour routes with limited service during middays, evenings and weekends.
The redesign will improve access and provide transit equity to those that live in low income neighborhoods and communities of color with more service to periphery areas of the city during more times and days of the week.
Metro Transit Redesign
The Metro Transit Network Redesign will develop a route system that will better meet the needs of Madison area residents and businesses by increasing access and frequency, decreasing travel times, and improving the quality of transit riders’ experience.
Transit Choices Survey
All community members, riders and non-riders, are encouraged to fill out a quick choices survey. Survey results will help shape the collective goals and priorities for Madison's future transit network.
