Under the leadership of General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld, Metro has focused on immediate priorities to improve system safety, service reliability and fiscal responsibility.
In early 2017, Wiedefeld issued a plan to keep Metro safe, reliable and affordable. The strategic plan called for 10 actions to restore the system to a state of good repair and establish long-term financial sustainability.
In recognition of the progress Metro is making to improve safety, service reliability and financial management, the regional funding jurisdictions passed historic legislation in 2018 that will provide, for the first time, a dedicated funding stream to support capital programs and will rebuild pride in Metro.
Building on the significant progress that has been made, the strategic plan was updated in early 2019. With a rapidly changing transit landscape, the updated plan lays out the challenges Metro faces and identifies opportunities for the region to work collaboratively to meet these challenges.
