Pinellas Community Bus Plan
The Pinellas Community Bus Plan seeks to refine regional mobility goals, establish a clear framework for service development, and provide a context for various transit planning efforts. Integral to the process is the thorough, grass-roots public involvement effort that will engage all sectors of the Pinellas community in meaningful dialogue, including traditionally under-represented groups.

The Plan's vehicle recommendations led to the Metro procurement of BRT designed 45-foot and articulated buses.

San Francisco Transit Effectiveness Project

LA Metro Bus Speed Improvement Plan
Metro partnered with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works (LACDPW) in two initiatives to reverse a long term decline in bus speeds: the Wilshire Boulevard Bus Speed Improvement Pilot Project followed by a Countywide Bus Speed and Street Design Improvement Study.
