May 2023 Service Council meeting dates, times and topics to be discussed

At this month’s Regional Service Council’s hybrid/in-person meetings, all Councils will hear the Station Evaluation Program Quarterly Update, discuss going dark for July (SFV) or August, and hear their region’s updates.

The Westside Central, Gateway Cities, and South Bay Cities Service Councils will consider signing a letter in support of SB 411 (a proposed Senate bill to allow virtual meetings) and get an update on the C & K Lines Operating Plan Outreach. The Gateway Cities Service Council will also discuss possible changes to their meeting times and locations.

  1. I will wait patiently to see if any of the NextGen changes occur to some of our Metro Routes this coming Summer. The ones that haven’t had major changes as of December 2022. Whenever I ride the 40 from Planet Fitness to the Redondo Beach Transit Center, it still mentions their former southern terminus (182nd and Hawthorne) instead of the Redondo Beach Transit Center (their new southern terminus). Even the Transit app hasn’t updated Lines 40, 210, and 211/215 to reflect the new transit center. Beach Cities Transit’s 102, Torrance’s 2, and GTrans 3 updated their maps (on Transit and Google) and bus stop announcements to reflect on this. For instance, I rode the TT2 to Del Amo Mall and the announcements mentioned two new stops on the southbound trips (Hawthorne Bl at Artesia Bl and the Redondo Beach Transit Center).
