Rock Region METRO has prepared its recommended Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program goal for submission to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) later this year, and is receiving public comment on the proposed program goal.

METRO invites comments on the recommended goal through 5 p.m., Monday, July 27, via the following methods:
