Town hall meeting on Metro Transit
New report to guide major system changes
Please join me for a special town hall meeting focusing on our transit system.
Metro is facing a cumulative deficit of more than a billion dollars over the next five years and expects to cut more than 600,000 hours of bus service in response. Nearly one-fifth of all bus service may be eliminated.
To respond to this crisis, the Council and Executive convened a regional task force of transit stakeholders and experts to examine the current system and recommend major changes. After seven months of work, the task force is ready to present their findings.
This town hall meeting will be your chance to hear directly from task force members on what they are recommending. After the briefing, you will have a chance to provide public testimony on what you think should be done.
I hope you will join me for this important meeting on the future of our transit system.
