DES MOINES, Iowa -- The future of the metro's public transportation is still in the works.

DART is redrafting its master plan after receiving input from the public. It found young professionals, seniors, and those with lower incomes tend to take the bus most often.

It also found factors like cheap gas, low traffic, and plentiful parking lead people to act otherwise.

“I know that there have been some programs where individuals get $100 off of their rent each month if they use Uber and public transit,” said Christine Hensley of the Des Moines City Council. “So I think there needs to be some things we're looking at if we want to break that cycle of adding additional parking garages.”

DART hopes to finish the plan by early fall.
