Big Day for Public Transit's Future in L.A.
Metro is expected to pass the Long Range Transportation Plan at this mornings meeting, which began at 9:30 a.m. As Streetsblogger Damien Newton explains, the plan "will cement the timeline for local funding from Measure R for projects and allow the agency to apply for Federal and State funds." Basically, if voted upon, the document will be the guiding force for the development of transit in L.A. for years to come.
Other than actually showing up for the meeting downtown, Newton says there are few different options keep up to date on what's happening, including following him and Foothill Goldline Extension advocates on Twitter. One would think that Metro's new blog, The Source, will live blog the event. You can also listen in by calling 213-922-6045.
