Did you know . . .

Metro has had some employees for more than 40 years. People stay because it is worth it.

Every full Metro bus takes 38 cars off the road. Every Metro rail car means 150 fewer cars on the the street. The result is reduced traffic congestion and a lot less pollution for everyone – even those who never take transit.

Serving Erie and Niagara counties, metro covered 10 million miles last year, with 26 million boardings.
