Note: Metro Service Changes Go Into Effect This Weekend
Sunday Metro will be implementing bus service changes including a number whose purpose are to provide better connections to the recently opened Expo Line.
This is also significant as it will be the first shake-up in a year, as the Dec. 2011 service changes didn’t go forward due to the agency being set back on its heels by the Federal Transit Administration Title VI review. The shake-up is Metro’s method by which operators bid on driving slots awarded based on seniority per the United Transportation Union collective bargaining agreement with the agency. Having the December shake-up not occur has been a cause of tension among the rank and file in Operations, but that is finally about to ease.
