Transit safety conversation

Engaging community and understanding impact

The Met Council is partnering with the Citizens League to engage customers and communities about their experiences with the region’s transit system and Metro Transit Police Department.

This regional transit safety conversation will intentionally center our customers and our communities around questions of safety and impact on the community of interactions on and near our transit system.

The goal is for these voices to lead the way as the Met Council and partners examine what safety really means for our operators, our customers, our neighbors in community, the youth riding our system, and leaders.

We invite you to either fill out a survey, attend a community forum in June, or both.

Next steps

The feedback from a survey and virtual community forums from summer 2021 will help shape the critical policy questions related to transit policing and safety the Met Council explores later this year.
