MTS began conducting extensive outreach in May 2019 to hear from the communities it serves about their transit priorities. To-date, MTS has attended nearly 20 community events, and hosted 11 community forums.

At outreach events, participants were given stickers to identify their top three transit values and types of transit projects they want to see, as well as provide open feedback.
