New METRO Advisory Committee Meeting Rescheduled
Posted on 05/04/2015

The May 5 meeting of the new METRO Advisory Committee has been rescheduled. The next meeting of the committee will be on Wednesday, May 20, at 5 p.m. at the Portland Public Schools’ Central Office, located at 353 Cumberland Avenue.

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 new 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. Its second meeting was planned for Tuesday, May 5, but has been rescheduled to the May 20 date to allow more time to gather information the group has requested.

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.
