SGV Connect 57: Metro’s Plans for Buses and the Gold Line Eastside Extension
Metro is conducting outreach on two big projects that could dramatically change the way people move about the San Gabriel Valley, and even throughout L.A. County: the Metro Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 (also known as the Eastside Gold Line Extension) and the NextGen Bus Study.
The last of the outreach meetings for the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 is tomorrow, Saturday 2/8, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Ark Montebello (details). To get you information about the ways the Eastside Gold Line might grow, Kris Fortin interviews four members of the outreach team: David Mieger, Jenny Cristales-Cevallos, Lauren Cencic and Lilian De Loza.
Metro is also holding meetings for its NextGen Bus Study that will revamp the way the agency schedules and manages its gigantic bus network. After initial outreach last year, Metro is holding meetings on proposed changes throughout the entire county, including a meeting at the El Monte Bus Station Monday night. Damien gets the rundown with Stephen Tu, the Director of Service Planning at Metro.
SGV Connect is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of downtown L.A.
