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.

The Citizens League team is putting pieces in place, and conversations will be more prominent in community soon. The initial phase of engagement will extend through spring 2021. Opportunities for engagement will be a combination of virtual and in-person as the team balances ways to connect during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Updates

This page will be updated as the regional safety conversation continues through mid-2021, and will include details on the more formal police review process that will follow.
