The Metro San Fernando Service Council kicks off a new round of monthly Service Council meetings this evening (Wednesday, February 6) in Van Nuys. With the exception of the Gateway Cities meeting, all of the February Service Council meetings will be held at the usual times and days and locations our Councils normally meet at.
The Gateway Cities Service Council will move their regularly scheduled meeting to a different day, and combine it with a special public workshop for Lines 111 and 311, which are the Council’s Corridor Study Lines for the year. The meeting and workshop will be held on Tuesday, February 12, starting at 5 pm. The public is encouraged to attend and share their ideas for improving service on the two study lines.
The South Bay Service Council will hold an additional meeting this month, on Wednesday, February 27 at 6 pm, to host a corridor workshop to discuss options to improve service on Metro Lines 210 and 710 (Crenshaw Boulevard). The meeting will be at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in the First Floor Community Room (between Sears and the LAPD Substation, by the Stocker Street entrance).
