Illinois transit operator rolls out rebranding changes

Posted on September 24, 2008

MetroLINK, the mass transit system for the Illinois Quad Cities, rebranded as Metro and is rolling out major changes to encourage more citizens to go green by using the Metro.

These changes will include a new slogan, logo, bus stop signs, graphics for the buses and an Internet microsite.

Metro offers a green transportation option for the Quad Cities: half of its fleet consists of compressed natural gas (CNG) buses, which reduce emission of exhaust pollutants by 70 to 85 percent.
