Moving Transit Forward

From the website:

Moving Transit Forward is a long-range planning process that will create a thirty-year transit plan for the St. Louis region. Through public input and consideration of existing and future transit technologies, service levels, and passenger amenities, our goal is to build a plan that will address the transit needs of the entire region.

Participants are invited to join online discussions related to this project on the Next Stop STL blog. From their about page:

Welcome to NextStop, the Metro-sponsored blog that focuses on regional and national transportation-related issues. Under the leadership of Bob Baer, Metro has made increased transparency a high priority. Our mission is to discuss and provide information about Metro and about the vital role that transportation plays in our community, impacting everything from mobility to economic development, real estate development and redevelopment, job creation, social justice, tourism, quality of life, and sustainability. The NextStop bloggers are passionate about transportation, and we hope this site will become the focal point for a community of transit users, supporters, and critical thinkers.

Have you ever wondered what a bus wash looks like, or how bus routes are designed? Have you noticed sidewalk and curb improvements near bus stops, and wondered who is responsible? Have you heard about new light rail systems in other communities, and wondered how we might incorporate some of their good ideas? Are you interested in regional planning, urban design, or bike paths? NextStop is the place for you.

We want to hear from you. Our comments section is the place to share your ideas about how to improve our current system, your questions about how things function, and your input into our projects and upgrades, how we do business, and future plans. We have set some simple ground rules to keep the communication flowing in a civil and productive way, so please take a look at our Comments Policy to review our conversation guidelines.

The Next Stop STL blog runs on Wordpress.

The project is present on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Youtube.

The project has also used web conferencing to engage with citizens (see sample webinar).
