The Metro Board doesn’t hold a meeting in August every year, so all of the Service Councils were asked if they wanted to dark for August as well. This month, only the San Fernando Valley and South Bay Service Councils will host meetings. Gateway Cities, San Gabriel and Westside opted to go dark and will not meet this month.
Since the San Fernando Valley Service Council went dark in July, they will receive the FY19 Q4 Station Evaluation Report and their FY19 Review of what they accomplished and learned over the last fiscal year. They will also have an overview of the plan for the upcoming NextGen Workshops and public hearings. Both San Fernando Valley and South Bay Service Councils will receive an update on the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project and their Regional Reports.
The South Bay will also hear about the LAX Airfield & Terminal Modernization Project and the effects it will have on bus service in the area. Finally, South Bay will discuss hosting a workshop to gather input on bus service changes around the opening of the Crenshaw Line.
The purpose of the Councils is to improve service and provide a space for riders and members of the community to ask questions, provide suggestions, and voice concerns about bus service. Links to individual web pages for each Service Council provided below with the meeting location. Agendas are posted monthly with links to the presentations here.
San Fernando: Wednesday August 7th at Marvin Braude Constituent Center, 6262 Van Nuys Blvd, Van Nuys 91401
South Bay: Friday, August 9th at 9:30 a.m. at Inglewood City Hall, One West Manchester Blvd, Inglewood, 90301
Everyone is encouraged to attend and share comments and suggestions on how Metro can improve bus service throughout Los Angeles County. If you would like to provide input but cannot attend a meeting, submit comments through the Service Council web pages or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your comments are for a specific Council, please indicate which one you are addressing in your e-mail. You can also use the email to subscribe to your Council’s email list to receive the agendas and other regional notices.

Nice to know the politburo is not interested in incorporating a token amount of feedback into its deliberations this time around
