Tune in to a November Service Council meeting for project updates and more

This month, all Service Councils will get updates on Metro’s Fareless System Initiative and the December bus service changes for their respective regions. They’ll also hear a roundup of regional items of interest.

The San Fernando Valley Service Council will receive an update on the NoHo to Pasadena BRT Project, and the Westside Central Service Council will receive an update on the La Brea Bus Priority Lanes Project.

Please note that the Gateway Cities meeting is not being held on the usual Thursday afternoon due to the Veteran’s Day holiday; instead, they’ll meet on Monday, November 1 at 4:30 p.m. Send us an email and let us know if this rescheduled time makes it easier for you to listen or participate.
