Metro: 1st Annual Student Summit

Metro and
the Los Angeles Community College District have partnered to host the first
annual

Student
Transportation Summit at Los Angeles Trade
Technical College
November 7. The summit will bring together community college and university
students to focus on the future transportation needs throughout LA County and specific
steps to address the environmental impacts of traffic, gridlock and quality of
life concerns. The collaboration is part of the District’s strategy to
offer students easy and affordable transportation to its campus and help reduce
carbon emissions by encouraging mass transit. Marc Haefele KPCC’s All Things Consider reporter
will emcee the event. Metro CEO Roger Snoble, Metro
Director Richard Katz, LADOT Director Rita Robinson, incoming Assembly Transportation
Chair Mike Eng, Measure R architect Assemblyman Mike Feuer,
LACCD Executive Director of Facilities Planning and Development Larry Eisenberg
and student leaders throughout the County
will share their ideas on how to improve mobility. Students will also have mentorship
opportunities with participating leaders and learn about internships
in the public, private, and civic sectors at an exhibit fair.
