Capitol Neighborhoods represents and advocates for those who live, work, and recreate downtown, including working to maintain and improve the quality of life for downtown residents. Several of our residents and neighbors have expressed concerns with the new audible turn signals installed on Madison Metro buses. These audible turn signals have at times caused disruption to the quality of life downtown, particularly in residential neighborhoods and during late evening and early morning hours.
Accordingly, Capitol Neighborhoods encourages the Transit and Parking Commission and other city leaders to explore alternatives to the use of audible turn signals. The Commission should consider modifying the existing system or moving to a different system.
