Bus stop livability leads WMATA Advisory Council Agenda

The WMATA Rider’s Advisory Council will meet tonight for our November meeting at Metro Headquarters from 6:30PM until 8:30PM.

Members of the WMATA Rider’s Advisory Council will receive a briefing from Metro staff about a new grant to improve bus stop livability. That item as well as reviews from last month’s Emergency Communications Panel will be on the agenda of the Rider’s Advisory Council. Also on the agenda will be a recap of meetings the system held last month reviewing proposals to adjust bus service and potential changes to our Public Participation Proposal.

The complete agenda is below but I would love your thoughts and ideas.  Let me know on twitterfacebook, or via at joseph@revkitchen.com.
