Angelenos are invited to participate in a conversation with the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority about the 2024 budget process during a live, interactive telephone town hall on Oct. 18 from 6-7 p.m.
As part of Metro’s ongoing Putting People First engagement efforts, the town hall will invite participants to share their comments and feedback on Metro’s other initiatives, including reimagined public safety, enhanced cleaning and its new initiative to implement fare capping on Metro’s bus and rail services. Participants will also have the opportunity to offer input on the kinds of work and projects that should be prioritized in the budget.
Metro will randomly contact approximately 100,000 residents from various ethnic and economic backgrounds from across L.A. County through an innovative automated telephone system to participate in the public forum. Residents can also pre-register to be called at the time of the event. When residents answer their phones, they will be automatically connected to Metro’s English-language meeting, with the option to select a Spanish-language simulcast as they join. Participants will also have an opportunity to provide input through real-time polling questions in their designated language.
This town hall is part of Metro’s larger effort for the 2024 budget process. There will be additional opportunities for the public to engage with Metro in the coming months.
