A BETTER CONNECTION

Trinity Metro is redesigning its bus network to create A Better Connection and we need your help.

To make real improvements, we are reconsidering the entire network – adding services, examining single routes and intersection of service times, locations and destinations in our growing city.

We need your input on how to make the system work for you today and in the years to come. On this page you will find everything you need to explain A Better Connection, including the project timeline, fact sheets, meeting information and most importantly the online survey. The public responses from the survey will directly influence the priorities and updates to the system. Your opinion matters!

Trinity Metro is designing a modern, transformative bus network. We have developed five key trade-offs to help frame the discussions. We need you to weigh-in on these trade-offs and let us know what are the best options for you and your community through the survey. You can learn more about each trade-off in the downloadable PDF Fact Sheets below.
