Free Rides on METRO Buses and Rail

Plus Major National Recognition

METRO's New Bus Network is just 54 days away from implementation and we're opening doors so people can try out the new system.  Starting August 16, 2015, METRO will link one million people to one million jobs, with simpler routes, more frequent service and better connections. 


These big changes come with big benefits and on Thursday, June 25, 2015, METRO will announce details of its initiative to provide complimentary transportation on its local bus network and light-rail lines. Take us for a test ride!
