Local service evaluation to better understand riders' needs and to recommend appropriate response. Public participation and input is invited and encouraged at each of the council’s monthly meetings.
Councils advise on planning and implementation of service within their area; call and conduct public hearings; evaluate Metro bus programs related to their service area; review proposed service changes; make policy recommendations to the Metro Board; participate in quarterly meetings with the Metro Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Deputy CEO and management staff.
