Metro rider survey infographic

Instead of posting the plain text from the latest Metro survey of bus and rail passengers, we  decided to give the numbers a graphical twist. As for the results, they’re pretty much in line with previous surveys. More info on how the survey was conducted below.

September Metro Service Council meetings

Agendas have been set for September’s five Service Council meetings, though changes may be made prior to the meeting dates. For a listing of the dates, times and locations of all five Service Council meetings, click here. For more information about each service council, click on the name of the service council listed below.

All September Council meetings include a report from Metro Service Council Director Jon Hillmer providing monthly and year to date statistics on ridership, performance and other measures of Metro service. In addition, a recent motion introduced by Director Antonovich for Regional Airport – Rail Connectivity Plan will be discussed, with Chris Haskell, a Metro Transportation Planning Manager, providing a brief report on the motion at all council meetings.

We wrote last month about corridor studies being conducted throughout the year by each Service Council. Councils will be discussing the corridor study in their area at their October meetings. We will feature an article on the various corridor studies each Council is involved with sometime in September.

Tech issues on metro.net today

As some of you may have seen by now, metro.net is having problems this afternoon and, to be perfectly blunt, isn't working. I think The Source is okay as long as people access the blog directly and don't go through the Metro website.

 

The tech team here at Metro HQ is working on it and hopefully everything will be back in working order soon. The agency apologizes for any inconvenience.
