We published a post last week explaining Metro’s service councils and their role in the agency’s bus service.
This is the first of what will be a monthly article highlighting the presentations scheduled for upcoming meetings. For a listing of the dates, times and locations of all five service council meetings, click here. For more information about each service council, click on the name of the service council listed below.
All council meetings include a report from Metro Service Council Director Jon Hillmer providing monthly statistics on ridership, performance and other measures of Metro service.
Coming up in August, all Councils will receive an update on Expo Line preparations for the upcoming USC football season. Over the next year or so, each Council will be working with staff on “corridor studies” that will delve into the details of a specific bus corridor within their area. Most months, staff will be bringing information about that corridor to the Council. The specific corridors for each Council are shown below along with other agenda items scheduled for August:
San Fernando Valley (8/1) - Universal Station Pedestrian Bridge, Upcoming I-405 Closure (Carmageddon II), Van Nuys Blvd. Bus Lines 233 and 761 Corridor Study
More info is after the jump!
Westside/Central (8/8) – Upcoming I-405 Closure (Carmageddon II), Santa Monica Blvd. Bus Lines 4 and 704 Corridor Study
Gateway Cities (8/9) – Efforts to improve cleanliness of park and ride lots, Inventory of Bus Station and Park and Ride Lot Cleanliness, Florence Ave. Bus Lines 111 and 311 Corridor Study

All service councils welcome and encourage public participation. If you would like to comment at any of the meetings, please fill out a speaker card when you arrive noting the specific item you are there to address. General comments on issues that aren’t on the agenda are taken as a part of the “public comment” section of the agenda. If you would like to provide input to the council, but cannot attend a meeting, you can submit your comments in writing through the service council web page or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your comments are for a specific council, please make sure to indicate which one you are addressing.
