Metropolitan and our non-profit sponsors actively partner with forty-four (44) cities and
counties across the State of Florida to provide public seating at local transit stops, in community parks and cemeteries,
along sidewalks, bike paths, trails, and any other point of pedestrian interest
at the direction of the host local government.
WHAT IS METRO BENCH?
Metro Bench is the
name of our community seating program. This
unique 65-year old initiative provides quality public seating to local
communities wherever there is a legitimate need. Metropolitan works with local non-profits to supply, install, maintain
and insure public benches at little or no cost to local governments, transit
authorities and related public entities as either a stand-alone project or to
supplement an existing network of public seating. Our goal is to never burden local taxpayers
with providing this service. We remain
committed to our mission to provide a community service that truly benefits the
seating program offers significant benefits to all of our partners. After 65-years, our program is a “win-win”
scenario for sponsors, communities and the local business community.
