Business Now Event Opens Next Chapter of METRONext

Voters approved the $3.5 billion METRONext bond referendum in November 2019. Executing the transformative travel plan with more than 40 projects will require the skills of a broad range of industry experts.

'Just as we needed the support of the community to get the METRONext plan approved, we need your support to execute that plan,' said METRO President & CEO Tom Lambert.

The METRONext projects are expected to generate more than 100 prime contracting opportunities along with hundreds of additional opportunities for smaller business providers.

'What we hope to accomplish today is to begin building a team including METRO staff and the business community to fulfill the promises of METRONext. It's going to take that team working together to help us deliver capital projects, improve operations and implement system enhancements,' said METRO Board Member Sanjay Ramabhadran.

Details on future opportunities for projects shared at METRONext Business Now are available at METRONext.org under the presentations archive tab. METRO's Small Business University offers regular programming to help engage small businesses. A list of upcoming training events can be found here.
