The economic prosperity of our region relies heavily on a safe, reliable and efficient Metro system that’s equipped for future growth.

Better Governance

Governance reform will shrink the Board and enable a sharper focus on the health of the entire system and its long-term sustainability.

Sustainable, Dedicated Funding

Improved Operations

Operational efficiency providing safe, frequent, and reliable transit, increased ridership, and reasonable fares will contribute to the overall quality of life and economic success of the region.
