ST. CLOUD -- Metro Bus will be surveying riders this week to gather information as part of their Long Range Transit Plan update. Riders will be given surveys Wednesday and Thursday.

The questions include identifying the purpose of their trip, how many times they typically ride the bus and basic demographic information. Riders will also have the chance to rate the service and where Metro Bus should consider adding new service.

Metro Bus will hold community meetings in October before presenting the plan to the public in November or December.
