About Metro Sustainability

Welcome to Metro's Sustainability Hub, where we're dedicated to fostering a greener future for communities through our transit service and sustainability initiatives.

Metro is Part of the Solution

Public transit is a crucial part of the solution to combat climate change and improve community well-being. By choosing Metro over driving alone, individuals can:

  • Reduce Carbon Emissions: When you take Metro, you're helping to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change.
  • Promote Clean Air: By taking Metro, you're reducing the number of cars on the road, which helps improve air quality and reduce harmful pollutants. This benefits public health and the environment.
  • Support Livable Communities: The existence of Metro supports a dynamic economy and communities with access to jobs, school, medical appointments, amenities, and world-class culture.
  • Foster Community Connection: Riding on Metrobus and Metrorail creates opportunities for you to connect with other people.
  • Alleviate Traffic Congestion: By choosing Metro, you're helping alleviate traffic congestion, leading to reduced travel times for everyone.
