METRO TO HOST INFORMATION SESSIONS ON BUS STOP PROJECT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FASTER, IMPROVED SERVICE


FAStops pilot scheduled to begin this spring

CINCINNATI – Metro will host a series of information sessions about its FAStops project.

The project, which began in June 2018 with a system-wide evaluation of Metro’s 4,000+ regular service bus stops, aims to speed up trip times and allow for improvements along routes by streamlining bus stop placement. Each stop is assessed based on its location -- ensuring stops aren’t too close or spread too far apart -- as well as its usage, amenities, safety and accessibility.

Several proposed changes to stops will be tested in a pilot program beginning in early March.

Metro will host information sessions to provide the public with more details on the following days:
