METS - Metropolitan Evansville Transit System

The Metropolitan Evansville Transit System was created in 1971 to address Evansville's growing need for public transportation.

Since then, our buses and paratransit vans have transported more than 45 million passengers.

Operations (Fixed Route):

Metropolitan Evansville Transit System (METS) provides transportation for the public on 24 fixed route service areas; informs the public of existing routes, as well as new or improved service; coordinates and plan routes and schedules; keeps a constant check on the effectiveness of service; implements and controls all managerial functions involved with the METS transit operation.

Operations (METS Mobility):

Provides paratransit service for persons 65 years or older or those with a documentable disability that limits their use of the METS regular route system (not for emergency use or ambulance service.) Trip reservations must be made by 4:00 pm the day prior. Drivers assist passengers with parcels and/or grocery bags. Operates in the corporate limits of the City, and a 3/4 mile wide corridor along either side of regular bus routes that extend beyond the City limits.

Maintenance

Implements preventative maintenance programs; provides complete mechanical failure restoration; repairs and refurbishes vehicles when applicable; reduces operation expenses and increase fleet productivity by monitoring equipment; records and maintains a viable inventory of parts to provide prompt and accurate maintenance of the fleet.
