Reminder: Metro will host two live, interactive telephone town hall meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday April 4 and Thursday, April 5, to talk about Metro’s NextGen Bus Study and outreach for Metro’s 2018-19 budget (the new fiscal year begins July 1).
The NextGen Study’s goal is to design a bus network that is more relevant,
reflective of and attractive to the residents of L.A. County. The meetings will be simulcast in English and Spanish.
Metro officials will also be holding “listening sessions” at each of the agency’s Service Council meetings this month with the public invited to provide feedback on their experiences with the Metro bus system.
For the Telephone Town Halls, residents across Los Angeles County will be called at random through an innovative automated telephone system and invited to participate in the public forum from the comfort of their own homes. The Telephone Town Hall also will include an option for participants to provide input through real-time polls. When residents answer their phones, they will be automatically be connected to the meetings. Anyone who does not receive a call but wants to participate can dial into the toll-free telephone number listed below.
- English: On the day of the meeting, the toll-free call-in number is 888-400-1932.
- Spanish: On the day of the meeting, the toll-free call-in number is 888-400-9342.
