Preview of November Service Council Meetings

All Service Councils will meet in November, except for the South Bay Service Council, which will be dark this month due to the Veterans Day holiday. The South Bay Council will meet next on Friday, December 9th.

The other four Service Councils will hear an update on the Metro Bike Share Program. As reported last week on The Source, in the first quarter of Metro Bike Share’s operations in downtown Los Angeles , the program surpassed 50,000 total rides and 2,000 annual flex or monthly pass-holders. At its October Board meeting, the Metro Board approved a contract that would launch bike share in Pasadena, the Port of Los Angeles and Venice next summer. Learn more here.

In addition, all Service Councils will receive the Station Cleanliness Quarterly Report, an update on December service changes, and the Report on Regional Service Performance. They will also consider whether to meet in December or go dark.
