Houston business and community leaders learned how they can help move forward 500 miles of travel improvements in the $7.5 billion METRONext Moving Forward Plan. METRONext's Business Now event attracted a wide range of vendors. Board members and staff provided an overview of future projects and explained how to do business with the Houston METRO.
"With your expertise and commitment to this community, we can begin to provide improved accessibility for the disabled and seniors, better bus service, an upgraded regional express network with two-way HOV lanes, new Park & Rides and transit centers, 75 miles of METRORapid service that operates like light rail, and much more," said METRO Board Chair Carrin Patman.
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.
The METRONext projects are expected to generate more than 100 prime contracting opportunities along with hundreds of additional opportunities for smaller business providers.
Details on future opportunities for projects shared at METRONext Business Now are available here, under the presentations archive tab.
