New Metro bus with updated brandingRead Metro's 2019 Annual Report

In 2019, Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway unveiled a rapid transit plan, MetroForward, a major local investment in transit meant to speed up workforce transportation, reduce congestion and build a health regional economy.

As part of the plan, City staff continued efforts to implement a Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT) with an initial corridor designed to operate east to west through Madison's downtown and University of Wisconsin campus areas.

An initial renovation phase of Metro's existing bus maintenance facility was also completed and service expanded into the City of Sun Prairie.
