Preview of June Metro Service Council Meetings

How can it possibly be June already? But it is and this month’s Metro Service Council agendas are set. There are no changes to the dates, times and locations for the five meetings this month, with the San Fernando Valley once again batting in the lead-off position with their meeting tomorrow (Wednesday), June 3.

Last month’s Service Council article mentioned public hearings were going to be held this July on proposed December 2015 service changes. Please note that those public hearings have been cancelled, and all of the service changes that were being considered have been withdrawn. Since there was never a finalized list of proposed changes, there is no information to share about any of the changes that were being considered.

    • Hi Ronald;

      Yes, but they are considered to be minor. They will be posted as part of the agendas for each Service Council. Not all of them are posted yet but will appear on this page: //www.metro.net/about/board/agenda/. I will try to find a single document that has all of them.
