Service Sector Governance Councils’ Quarterly Meet and Confer
As I noted in my previous commentary "Metro In Transition", while the

that cross sector boundaries.
On Tuesday Feb. 16th at 3 p.m. the first quarterly Sector Governance
Council Meet and Confer will be held in the Metro Board Room, on the
3rd floor of the headquarters building adjacent to the Gateway Transit
Plaza just east of Union Station.

is a chance in one setting to address Metro management/operations staff
and Sector Governance Council members regarding any bus service issues
