Just a reminder: Metro has its semiannual shake-up this Sunday, Dec. 13th.

Veteran riders and advocates know that twice a year Metro's bus operators bid for driving slots based on seniority per the collective bargaining agreement between the agency and the United Transportation Union, which represents the bus and rail operators. This means you may see new faces behind the wheel on the routes you regularly ride.

During the change-over, Metro also makes adjustments to service.

In addition to these small shake-ups, we will see two new services begin: the weekday peak hour route 902 linking the Van Nuys corridor and North Hollywood Red Line station and the Silver Line operating along the Harbor and El Monte busways through downtown L.A..

I have some concerns about the new services and their advisability, and plan to keep an eye on how they do. Service shakeup and watching how they work out...just another part of the fun world of transit advocacy.
