BOOST and Signature
A METRONext Moving Forward Plan investment
A Better Walk. A Better Stop. A Better Ride.
METRO’s BOOST network includes 17 high-ridership, frequent bus routes. To enhance the customer experience, the METRONext Moving Forward Plan provides for speed, reliability and access improvements to these routes. At or near many stops, this may include:
- New or improved sidewalks
- Accessibility upgrades
- Bus shelters with lighting
- Digital real-time bus arrival information
- Traffic signal improvements
The highest ridership route is 82 Westheimer. For this route, the plan introduces Westheimer Signature Bus Service which will include infrastructure and service improvements.
