Metro Transit Public Survey

The MPO and Metro Transit are asking community members to complete a 12-question survey regarding their experience using the current bus system.

Survey results will help us with the Transit Development Plan, which guides service and facility improvements and budgets of Metro Transit. It will also build on recent changes to the current system, such as the Transit Network Redesign and the planned opening of Madison’s first Bus Rapid Transit line in late 2024. 

The survey will close on Monday, June 24. The survey is also available in Chinese, Hmong and Spanish. To request a paper survey, please contact us via email at or Metro by phone at (608) 266-4466.
