    How about the following proposed Westside service changes to the 2, 4, and 16 – to be discussed Wednesday afternoon. Options include ending the 4 at Santa Monica and Vermont, forcing a transfer, or possibly eliminating ALL local direct buses between Hollywood and Silver Lake (the 2 and 4 would end at Vermont much like how the 1 became the 217). Even splitting up the Sunset bus into three buses is on the table. Very, very bad move for access to the beach and social equity issues if that goes through.  While the meeting at 5 pm is a bad time, it’s time for a few members in the public to nip this in the bud. The Westside subway is only a few years away and we can modify service more holistically then. http://www.metro.net/board/Items/2013/02_February/20130213OtherSectorWESItem5.pdf
