As part of an independent international survey effort by transit agencies serving 14 cities around the world, Metro is asking customers to tell us their thoughts about the bus service we provide.  The 14 agencies will compare the results of their surveys in order to learn from one another and work toward providing even better service.  We would like to hear your thoughts about the bus service Metro Transit provides for you. Please take this quick, simple and confidential survey, available in EnglishSpanish and Traditional Chinese. The deadline for submitting it is May 21, 2017.  Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
