  1. Metro Operations Employee of the Month.
  2. RECEIVE the Transit Operations report.
  3. RECEIVE report on System Safety.
  4. RECEIVE report on Los Angeles Metro Protective Services (LAMPS).
  5. APPROVE the following findings for recently completed equity evaluations:
    1. there are no disparate or disproportionately adverse impacts from the planned implementation of the following major service changes:
      • Cancellation of Route 363 and replacement with Route 162;
      • Extension of Routes 30 & 330 from Pico BI. to Sunset BI.;
      • Cancellation of Route 730 and replacement with Route 330;
      • Shortening of Line 740 to Exposition/Crenshaw; and
      • Operation of Phase 1 of the Metro Expo Line to Culver City Station; and
    1. find that despite disparate impacts on some riders there is substantial legitimate justification for adopting the proposed service changes as they meet a goal that is integral to the mission of Metro of achieving a balanced operating budget, and that the selected alternatives to these service changes would have a less severe adverse effect on Title VI protected populations than other alternatives that were studied:
      • Discontinuation of Line 439 and extension of Line 217 to Fox Hills Mall;
      • Shortening of Line 42 to MLK/Western, reroute of Line 42 to Western/Exposition, and combination with Line 102 to its Palm/Seville terminal (Line 102 west of Western Av will be discontinued);
      • Discontinuation of Line 305; and
      • Shortening of Line 550 to Exposition/Vermont together with discontinuation of Harbor Transitway operation during off-peak periods.
  1. AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer to:
    1. execute Amendment No.1 to Contract PS07701003B with Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Contract PS07701003C with VPSI, Inc., extending the current vanpool lease program for a period of six months for an amount not to exceed $2,950,000, increasing the total contract value for the Metro Vanpool Program from $19,128,400 to $22,078,400; and
    2. amend the FY12 Budget to add $577,500 of revenues and expenses for the purposes of continuing Metro Vanpool Program implementation through June 30, 2012.
  2. CONSIDER:
    1. finding that the procurement of 40' transit buses under Public Utilities Code Section 130232 does not constitute a procurement method adequate for Metro's needs. The Board hereby authorizes procurement of these 40' transit buses pursuant to Public Contracts Code (PCC) Section 20217 for procurement by competitive negotiation; and
    2. authorizing the Chief Executive Officer to solicit a Best Value Request for Proposal for a contract to purchase up to a total of 900 transit buses, including a base order of 550 buses and options for up to 350 buses, as a competitive negotiation pursuant to PCC Section 20217 and Metro's Procurement Policies and Procedures.
      (REQUIRES 2/3 VOTE OF THE BOARD)
  3. CONSIDER:
    1. authorizing the Chief Executive Officer to award fifteen (15) multi-year firm fixed unit rate requirements contracts under Bid No. FSP12 with the following lowest responsive and responsible bidders for towing services for the Metro Freeway Service Patrol (FSP) for an amount not to exceed $26,122,300:
