‘Metro Reimagined’ overhaul to headline public transit meetings

ST. LOUIS, MO — Metro is starting a series of public meetings to lay out a plan that will overhaul public transit around the St. Louis area. People can not only learn more about the plan known as "Metro Reimagined" but they can also ask questions and give feedback on the proposal.

Last week Metro workers were handing out brochures to riders talking about the new plan. Metro Reimagined is designed to enhance the transit system and develop a new service plan aimed at improving customer service, increasing access to destinations and addressing future transportation needs.

Specifically, the plan calls for more frequent bus service on Metro's high volume routes including it's 12 most popular routes along with an easier to understand network to provide riders with faster, more direct trips.  There is also a push for more technology, inlcuding text messaging and email service, where customers can directly contact metro public safety and get rider alerts. The plan also talks about shuttles and on-demand services.
