Bus art from the heart

To be a lifelong friend of transit it helps to start young, and we received some amazing RapidRide H Line fan artwork from Jonas Y., age 8. Thank you, Jonas for reminding us that transit helps people and makes the world better. See more bus and public transportation artwork on their blog!

It’s one of our favorite times of the year — Pride Month!

Thumbnail of YouTube video with mom and daughter in Pride wear at the Pride ParadePride Month is a celebration of who you are, who you love, and being able to show up as your authentic self. We celebrate our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual (LGBTQIA+) and Two-Spirit family, friends, and colleagues.  We celebrate their courage and commitment in advancing civil rights and equity. We celebrate with bright colors and joy, recognizing these communities have long been forcibly erased from history and pressured to hide in society. Metro General Manager Michelle Allison shared her message to celebrate and kick-off the month.

While RapidRide H Line service began in March, we are continuing some paving and punch list work (see FAQs below for more information). This work will not impact bus service.

We will continue sending email updates monthly to keep you informed on what to expect near you. We’ll also reach out to route neighbors, businesses, and local community organizations throughout construction to notify them when and where work will happen, as well as what impacts to expect and construction wrap ups.

Please feel free to share this information with your neighbors and encourage them to contact us via email or telephone, join our virtual office hours session or sign up for project email updates.
