2030 Strategic Planning
Current Step: Research, Survey, and Public Engagement
Beginning in 2022, METRO has been gathering information, both locally and nationally, on the state of the transit industry. A passenger and non-rider survey was completed in the fall/winter of 2022. The regional Transit Together study was completed in January 2023, and approved by the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System (PACTS) Policy Board in February 2023. Other regional and national plans and research will also be incorporated.
METRO will be holding a Board workshop on April 27, 2023 from 4pm-7pm to discuss the state of the transit industry and outline the visioning and goals of the strategic planning process. METRO invites all members of the public and stakeholders to attend, and let us know what the future of METRO should look like.
