Metra adopted its first ever strategic plan, On Track to Excellence, in 2017, covering the 2018-22 time period. It is now time for Metra to update that plan for the next five years, 2023-27. To begin this process, we launched a public survey in June 2022 to get feedback on the revised mission and vision statements and new strategic goals for Metra. The survey closed July 18.
The new strategic plan will be developed later this summer, incorporating feedback from the survey and other key stakeholders. Metra will then share the draft plan with the Metra Board later this fall and offer opportunity for public comment on the draft. After incorporating feedback on the draft plan, a final plan will be written and presented to the Metra Board for adoption in early 2023.
