The Plan

Reinventing Metro Plan: An opportunity to bring real, transformational change to our region.

Join us in Reinventing Metro

The Reinventing Metro plan calls for transit improvements that will positively impact all of Hamilton County. These unprecedented improvements include additional routes and hours of service, enhanced frequencies, reduced travel times, more access to employment and upgrades to transit infrastructure.

The Facts:

Fact 1: Transit in Hamilton County has not changed in almost 50 years.

Fact 2: Hamilton County’s population has been steadily growing, with much of the growth taking place outside the city of Cincinnati.

Fact 3: Hamilton County has many job, residential, shopping, services and recreation centers located outside of the urban core.

Fact 4: Metro's service has, since its inception, revolved around Downtown, resulting in major employers and employment centers outside the city center being underserved by transit.

Fact 5: Our population is aging, with more and more people seeking alternative ways of getting to doctors appointments, shopping and other important destinations.

To sum it all up, Hamilton County’s existing bus system does not meet the travel demands of our modern community. Reinventing Metro will address the shortcomings of the Metro system and expand quality bus service countywide.

The Reinventing Metro plan accomplishes the following:

Shifting Metro's local funding from a city earnings tax to a countywide sales tax will result in a net decrease in taxes for most residents.



Bus Rapid Transit:


The Reinventing Metro plan includes a new and exciting travel option for the Cincinnati region - Bus Rapid Transit (BRT). BRT provides faster service than local or express routes and will transform our region and the way people get around. Learn more about BRT's amenities, benefits and advantages.
