CINCINNATI – Since its last transit plan in 2008, Metro has added new kinds of buses (hybrid, “accordion” and smaller buses), partnered with the Cincinnati Zoo on a new LEED-certified transit center, added a new transit center/ park & ride in Western Hills with direct service to Uptown, introduced new fare options, and improved electronic communications to customers.
Metro held seven public meetings in the community in March to get feedback from customers for its Way to go* initiative to better meet Greater Cincinnati’s transportation needs and plan for future improvements.
The public meetings, as well as online survey, are the start of a dialogue with the community. Metro will use the ideas it gathers through community outreach to create a plan by the end of the year.
“Our goal is to define ‘the new Metro’ – a customer-driven, sustainable regional transit system. Through surveys, phone interviews and public meetings, we’ll map specifically where Metro needs to evolve its routes and services,” said Metro CEO and General Manager Terry Garcia Crews. “This planning initiative will help us define how Metro should best allocate its current resources and prepare for the future.”
Metro is a tax-supported public service of the Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority. Metro operates almost 344 buses, providing about 17 million rides per year in the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, with limited service to Butler, Clermont and Warren counties.
