Metro began a comprehensive transit planning effort in 2012 that included extensive research, public meetings, on-board and on-line surveys, focus groups, and community outreach at dozens of events throughout Cincinnati.

Metro reached thousands of people and gathered extensive community input. In November, 2012 and in May, 2013, we presented the preliminary plan to the community. Again, we listened to suggestions to make the plan even better, and made a number of changes based on comments we received.

Last year, the community told us the way Metro should go... now it's time to go*Forward. 

Short-term improvements

Highlights of  changes made in August 2013 and December 2013 within Metro’s budget include:

  • New, limited-stop service called Metro*Plus, connecting the Montgomery Road corridor to Uptown and downtown
  • More service options in major corridors, including Glenway, Winton, Vine, and Reading
  • More crosstown services traveling east and west
  • Shorter travel times by streamlining several routes

Long-term improvements

Metro has a vision to increase mobility and connect more people and places in the region:
