November 2013 proposal

The information below details Metro’s November 2013 proposal to cut service levels by 600,000 annual service hours (17 percent of current service). Based on a recent forecast of increased sales tax revenue, Metro is scaling back this proposal to 550,000 hours (16 percent of current service). After the revised proposal is final, we’ll update the details on this website. Meanwhile, our Info Sheets page has a summary of the current draft proposal and related table showing routes that would be deleted, changed, or unchanged.
