JULY 2020 ON TIME PERFORMANCE AND RIDERSHIP
Trinity Metro needs your help to redesign its bus network
Trinity Metro is designing a modern, transformative bus network to improve public transportation in Fort Worth and Tarrant County. The system redesign, known as A Better Connection, is intended to make substantial improvements by reviewing the entire network and focusing on five key topics that include system priorities, waiting vs. walking, and preferences on downtown vs. other destinations.
Between now and Aug. 31, you can take an online survey to share what you think is the most important for the future of public transportation. Trinity Metro will gather customer feedback, which will directly impact priorities and system changes.
To help frame the discussion, the agency has developed five key areas: System Priorities, Waiting or Walking?, How Can We Serve You at a Local Level?, Downtown or Other Destination and Peak or Off-Peak. Trinity Metro wants to hear what you think are the best options.
