Have Lunch With Metro Today
Know how to raise billions of dollars for public transportation? Metro wants to chat with you today at noon in their third live internet chat.
"Tell Metro Board Chair and Santa Monica City Council Member Pam O'Connor where you think the money should come from to pay for future transit projects and keep the system running," a press release states. "Should it be a half cent sales tax? Public/private partnerships? Parking fees? Toll roads? Or something entirely different"
