Learn How to Use Our New Website Rio Metro Regional Transit District is excited to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website! The new combines the existing Rail Runner Express and Rio Metro websites into one. We’ve redesigned our entire look, focusing on improved user experience with plenty of information to help navigate our network of trains and buses. The new website contains an abundance of information, including: schedules, fares, area attractions, maps, calendar of events, social network features, and a “Learn How To…” section, to name a few!

The new site officially launched on January 8, 2013. The site’s homepage welcomes visitors with bold colors, a clean uncluttered design, and a photo rotator with featured content focused on our mission to manage a regional, integrated, multimodal public transportation network that is innovative, and efficient. Rio Metro strives to deliver service that is responsive to public need and showcases our commitment to high levels of customer service.

The website will be updated on a regular basis, with rider alerts, news of events, service launches and new content. We will be encouraging our visitors to contact us through the website and sign up for our newsletter.

A special thanks to Tracy Clark from Argus DesignWorks and Harlow Pinson with Indepth Learning, who have been working very diligently with the Rio Metro marketing team during 2012!
