Long Beach Transit seeks comments on service changes
2009-08-31 · By Editor
Due to changing demand for transit services in Long Beach, Long Beach Transit is seeking feedback from the public on service changes that would add service to CSULB, downtown Long Beach, North Long Beach, the Artesia Blue Line Metro Station, and some parts of East Long Beach, where service does not currently exist.
The public is invited and encouraged to provide input on suggested changes that would fulfill these needs in the community. If these changes are approved by the Long Beach Transit Board of Directors, they would take effect Sunday, February 14, 2010.
According to Long Beach Transit Chief Operating Officer Guy Heston, “We are reaching out to the public in several ways so they have the opportunity to comment. These service enhancements, if well received by the public, would impact our customers, businesses and residents in the affected areas.”
Comments can be at a public hearing on Monday, September 28, from noon to 2:00 p.m. in Long Beach City Hall Council Chambers, 333 West Ocean Boulevard.
The public hearing will be conducted by the Long Beach Transit Board of Directors, with Spanish translation available. Accommodations at the Public Hearing for special needs can be requested by calling 562-489-8485 by September 14. Most Long Beach Transit buses serve the City Hall via the Transit Mall.
There are other ways to provide input:
