We need your help!

To help celebrate our 110th anniversary, METRO Magazine is accepting nominations for its Most Influential People of the Last Decade.

Let us know who you think has made a difference in public transportation. Do you know someone who has made a huge contribution to their agency or company, the industry or their community?

We want to hear their story. (Would you be willing to be interviewed for this story to give insight about your nominee?)

Profiles of these influential people will be featured in METRO’s September/October issue.
