Tune in to virtual July Service Council Meetings for updates on NextGen Bus Plan and more

To comply with local and state directives limiting the number of people that can gather, the Service Councils will continue to meet virtually. For July meetings, all Councils will see their region’s revised NextGen Bus Plan proposals that will be taken to the hearings in August and voted on in September. All Councils will also get an overview on the Comprehensive Pricing Study and hear from the Station Evaluation Program team.

Agendas will be posted here at least 3 days before the meeting if not sooner, along with links where people can submit comments to be read during the meeting.
