Preview of January Metro Service Council Meetings

After a holiday break in December for four of the five Service Councils, all are back and ready to get to work in 2017. If you’re still finalizing your New Year’s resolutions, why not resolve to attend at least two Metro Service Council meetings this year? Each meeting includes time for public comment, and the Service Council members would welcome your feedback and ideas about how to improve our system.

All five Service Councils will hear the report on Metro’s Annual On-Board Survey, always an interesting and enlightening presentation. Additionally, all Service Councils will hear a report on the U-Pass Pilot Program from Devon Deming, Director of Commute Services (and a former South Bay Service Councilmember).  The Universal Student Pass Pilot Program for Colleges, Universities and Trade Schools launched this past fall, with the goal of increasing transit ridership and creating a new generation of transit riders. The Councils will hear the very latest information on student participation in the pilot and what’s planned next.

  1. Could you verify the info for the Gateway Cities council?
    The Gateway page lists a different time and place than the “Board Meetings & Agendas”
    page. I believe the “Board Meetings & Agendas” might be right, but I need verification.
    The location is new to me.
