June 2023 Service Councils Meetings Highlight Fare Restructuring, June Service Changes

At the June Service Council meetings, all Councils will get updates on Fare Restructuring and June Service Changes. They’ll also adopt their annual work plans, elect their chair and vice chair for FY24, and hear the usual regional updates. The Gateway Cities, South Bay Cities, and Westside/Central Service Councils will also get an update on the C & K Operating Plan, and Westside/Central Service Council will discuss going dark for the month of August.
