Send/Tweet/Comment Your Questions for a #DamienTalks on Foothill Transit’s Restructuring Plan

Foothill Transit

Late last month, Foothill Transit announced plans for its bus service to react to ridership changes caused by the opening of the first phase of the Gold Line Foothill Extension. Last week, its Board of Directors approved taking the changes to the public through a series of hearings before a Board vote later this spring.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune has broken down the largest changes, including segmenting Line 187, that currently runs from Pasadena to Montclair. The change will allow Foothill Transit to focus on more local service on the new Line 187 (Pasadena to Azusa) and Line 188 (Azusa to Montclair).

Tomorrow, #DamienTalks will be talking with staff at Foothill Transit in advance of their upcoming series of public hearings that start on Friday and continue until April 22. To be as useful as possible, I’ll be asking reader questions. Leave a question or comment in the comments section below, on Facebook or tweet @damientypes. We’ll release the podcast on Thursday morning. If you want to know more about the restructuring, read this report released to the Foothill Transit Board of Directors.
