MetroTransit Guest at SCNA October 11 and November Neighborhood Meeting
In late 2014, Metro Transit received a $3.26 million Ladders of Opportunity Grant from the Federal Transit Administration to invest in bus stop and customer waiting shelter improvements that enhance access to employment and educational opportunities. These grant funds, along with available state and local money, will be used to fund the Better Bus Stops Program. You can read more about Better Bus Stops at hmetrotransit.org/better-bus-stops. To read more about improvements in the Shingle Creek neighborhood related to Better Bus Stops, view the neighborhood specific page at metrotransit.org/shingle-creek.
As part of the Better Bus Stop program, MetroTransit is surveying stakeholders in an effort to better understand their priorities for stop improvements specifically regarding shelters, heat, light and other amenities. We hope that members of the Shingle Creek Board and community members will take the Better Bus Stop Survey found at metrotransit.org/Data/Sites/1/media/about/improvements/shelters/survey_one-pager.pdf
SCNA has invited MetroTransit as a guest speaker to talk in October about the Potential Long-Term Glenwood Realignment Study. It is a process to determine the long-term route of the C Line into downtown between Olson Memorial Highway or Glenwood Avenue. And they will be returning in November to speak about the Better Bus Stop program.
