Regional Connector and Westside Subway meetings go Web 2.0

Metro Los Angeles's Photos - Regional Connector Transit CorridorBoth the Regional Connector and Westside Subway have community meetings coming up – but this time you don’t actually have to be there in person to follow the action. Metro will be making use of new social media technologies – Ustream and Twitter – to connect the community to the meetings.

There are four Regional Connector meetings scheduled starting tomorrow and continuing through April 17. Five Westside Subway meetings are scheduled beginning Monday and continuing through April 21.

Friday’s Regional Connector meeting will be streamed live on Ustream at noon. You can RSVP and tune in here: Metro will leave a copy of the recording at the site for stakeholders to view at their leisure.

The Westside Subway team has set up a Twitter account and will live-tweet all five of their meetings which each begin at 6:00 PM.  You can follow them at:

For those who prefer to kick it old school, you can find the locations and times for the meetings after the jump.
