Metro Transit to Host Informational Meetings and Public Hearings About New Transit Plan
Metro Transit is asking for public input about a preliminary plan that will change public transit in the St. Louis region. The new strategy will update service options and incorporate innovative transit concepts that will offer Metro riders faster, more frequent service. Metro will host six informational meetings and two public hearings in April to share the proposed plan with transit riders, stakeholders and the public to gather feedback on the service options being considered.
Metro launched Metro Reimagined, a comprehensive analysis of the MetroBus system, in July 2017 to ensure that Metro is positioned to meet the evolving transportation needs of the St. Louis region, today and in the future. Combined with input from transit users and the public, the information collected through the Metro Reimagined study has allowed Metro planners to identify enhancements to the transit system and develop a new service plan that will improve the customer experience, increase access to destinations throughout the area and address the future mobility needs of the region.
The public is invited to attend the informational meetings to learn more about the proposed plan, speak with a transit planner, ask questions and share their feedback. Information about the new plan, including detailed maps and an online feedback survey, are also available at metrostlouis.org/reimagined.
