Read the final report from Metro's Recovery Task Force here
Metro’s COVID-19 Recovery Task Force has released A Path Forward , their final report, completing the work begun in April of 2020. Recommendations in the report — including accelerating bus and bike lanes, enhancing amenities at rail stations and bus stops, offering incentives to reduce car ownership, more seamlessly integrating services from the region’s many transit operators, and reducing construction costs — are meant to help advance better mobility and equity than before the pandemic.
If individual recommendations need a policy or program change, or additional funding, they will go to the Metro Board of Directors for discussion and public comment. When there is progress to report or decision points that can benefit from public input, we will add updates to this site.
You can also read a PowerPoint, which outlines the final recommendations in Spanish, here .
