Website Launch, News Conference Offer Update on ORBT Bus Line

On May 10, Metro Transit presented a design update on ORBT, or Omaha Rapid Bus Transit. At a news conference, Metro Executive Director Curt Simon, Mayor Jean Stothert and Metro transit board President Daniel Lawse revealed ORBT station locations, route map, station design, and details about key features of the line.

The news conference was well-covered by the Omaha media, with reporters from all four TV stations, KFAB, and the Omaha World-Herald in attendance, among others. Here’s links to their coverage:

Lovgren Marketing Group has worked with Metro on public outreach and marketing on the project since it’s inception, and in addition to helping coordinate Thursday’s event, developed a microsite for ORBT. The site launched in conjunction with the news conference, and has information on the route, stations, vehicles, features of ORBT, and more.
