The Federal Transit Administration requires Metro to issue a Public Participation Plan (Plan) as part of its Title VI Program Update every three years. The Plan guides all of Metro’s outreach to gather important public input on possible changes to bus and rail service, new projects in planning and in construction, fares and other programs. Metro continues to go above and beyond legal requirements in seeking public input in an effort to make Metro’s 2019 Plan the best that it can be.

Current Status

On March 6, 2019, Metro released the 2019 Draft Plan for public review.  The Draft plan will be circulated for a public comment period starting Wednesday, March 6 , 2019 through Friday, April 12, 2019.

Next Steps

Once the public comment period concludes, Metro staff will review public comments received and revise the Draft Plan in response to these comments.  The revised Plan will then be submitted to the Metro Board for their consideration and approval in late Summer/early Fall 2019. If adopted by the Metro Board, the Metro’s 2019 Plan will serve as the baseline for all Metro public outreach.

Public Meetings

During the month of March, Metro will present the 2019 Draft Plan and receive public comments about the document at the locations listed below.  View the presentation in English and Spanish .
