Hollywood weighs in on Carmageddon II

Hey Readers!

The I-405 is officially liberated and Carmageddon turned out to be CarmaHeaven once again. The speculation and wonderment kept the Twittersphere abuzz all weekend – everyone and their grandmothers tweeted about the phenomenon. We thought it would be fun to round-up the Twitter chatter from famous people (do they drive?). As last year, there seems to be two camps: those enjoying the unique phenomenon and those taking it with a grain of salt. The latter brought out the funnies.

Where do you stand? What did you do this weekend? Let us know — if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #CarmageddonII.

Loved it!

These famous folks soaked up the CarmaHeaven weekend.

Metro rider survey infographic

Instead of posting the plain text from the latest Metro survey of bus and rail passengers, we  decided to give the numbers a graphical twist. As for the results, they’re pretty much in line with previous surveys. More info on how the survey was conducted below.

How the surveys are done

Every year, Metro conducts a survey aboard their buses and trains.  This is how we take “the pulse” of our riders. We send surveyors onto a sample of enough bus lines to account for 98% of our weekday passenger boardings.

September Metro Service Council meetings

Agendas have been set for September’s five Service Council meetings, though changes may be made prior to the meeting dates. 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 September Council meetings include a report from Metro Service Council Director Jon Hillmer providing monthly and year to date statistics on ridership, performance and other measures of Metro service. In addition, a recent motion introduced by Director Antonovich for Regional Airport – Rail Connectivity Plan will be discussed, with Chris Haskell, a Metro Transportation Planning Manager, providing a brief report on the motion at all council meetings.

We wrote last month about corridor studies being conducted throughout the year by each Service Council. Councils will be discussing the corridor study in their area at their October meetings. We will feature an article on the various corridor studies each Council is involved with sometime in September.
