Metro Transit is now Metro!
As of January 1, 2018, we've changed our name and our look as we continue providing public transportation in Kalamazoo County!
Be watching in 2018 as we:
- Update our fleet with new buses and a new look
- Introduce our new logo and driver uniforms to the community
- Prepare to provide another fare payment option to our riders
- Improve bus stop locations and amentities, including shelters and stop signs
- Provide more information to passengers through myStop Mobile app, Facebook, and Twitter
We'd love to hear from the community as well. Fill out our contact form at the top of the page to let us know how we are doing or call (269) 337-8222.
