Build a Better Bus System.
METRO is hosting several public meetings at City of Houston Multi-Service Centers on the agency’s draft five-year transit plan.
The meetings are “open house” in format and will provide a brief overview of the System Reimagining project and the major changes proposed under the plan. Several stations will be set up at which visitors will be able to learn and discuss aspects of the redesigned system, and to share their comments. Here is the schedule.
The redesign of METRO’s local bus system has been underway for more than a year. The plan aims to connect more people to more places with more frequent service seven days a week. For an overview of the proposed plan, go here.
The public’s feedback is an important step in the process as the draft plan is refined before it goes to the METRO board for its review and approval. Following board approval, the new bus plan is slated to be implemented in the summer of 2015.
