METRO Advisory Committee’s Next Meeting June 2
Posted on 05/21/2015

The next meeting of the new METRO Advisory Committee is scheduled for Tuesday, June 2. The meeting will begin at 5 p.m. in room 209 of City Hall.

The new committee has been formed to provide feedback and suggestions and facilitate community outreach regarding the new plan to have Greater Portland METRO buses transport Portland Public Schools’ high school students to and from school and also to and from extracurricular activities, starting this fall.

The committee includes representatives from the following stakeholder groups: students, parents, the Portland Board of Public Education, the school district and the METRO transit district. The committee held it first meeting on April 28.

The new committee also plans to take a multimodal look at the various alternative ways students get to school, such as by walking and bicycling, to ensure that students can access those means of transportation easily and safely as well.
