Measuring progress As METRO CONNECTS was developed, Metro worked with community members, elected officials, and other stakeholders to develop performance metrics for the 2040 service network. Figure 9 lists the key metrics in three areas: transit access, transit connections, and transit use and efficiency. Figure 9 also shows projected outcomes. As we implement METRO CONNECTS, we will track our progress toward these outcomes. Full methodology and performance projections can be found in Appendix A. Additional detail is available in the Supplemental Network Performance Report.
