Preview of December Service Council Meetings

December is here, which means new bus schedules are coming soon, and a new year is right around the corner.

Only the San Fernando Valley and Gateway Service Councils will meet in December; the other Service Councils will go dark until January. Both will receive the FY19 Q1 Station Evaluation Report, while the rest of the Councils will hear the report next month. The SFV Service Council will also receive a TAP Program update, an update from Burbank Transit, as well as the review of the June Shakeup and a preview of the December Shakeup. The scheduled items for each Council are listed below, and the agendas are posted monthly with links to presentation materials here. The meetings provide residents more opportunities for direct input into service issues in their communities, as well as region-specific project updates.
