Join our Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday, April 16!

Do you live in LA County? You’re invited to engage with agency leaders, listen and learn from other stakeholders, and share your ideas on our initiatives and FY25 annual budget this Tuesday, April 16 at 6 p.m.   

Metro’s Telephone Town Hall is an opportunity for you to share your thoughts on Metro’s initiatives, including expanding and improving service, elevating the transit experience, and ensuring safety. Your input is critical to ensuring that the budget currently under development reflects the needs and priorities of the public.  

Like past telephone town halls, Metro randomly contacts approximately 100,000 residents from various ethnic and economic backgrounds across Los Angeles County through an automated telephone system to participate in the public forum. When residents answer their phones, they will be automatically connected to Metro’s English-language meeting with the option for Spanish-language participants to select Spanish. This is an open forum and it will be recorded and made available to the public and the news media.  

Residents can also preregister at https://tthm.wufoo.com/forms/metro-telephone-town-hall-signup

You can also join by phone using the following phone numbers (please only call on the specific date and time of the meeting):  

  • English: On the day and time of the meeting, the toll-free call-in number is 888-400-1932

Budget Background 

 The Metro budget identifies the priorities, programs, and initiatives that the agency will be pursuing in the year ahead. This begins with Metro’s Office of Management and Budget forecasting the resources available for the upcoming year. This is followed by an extensive schedule of outreach activities planned with key stakeholder groups, customers, and the public. The FY25 Budget process will wrap up with a legally required public hearing in mid-May 2024 followed by adoption of the budget at the Metro Board of Directors’ meeting on May 23, 2024.
