Faith Leaders’ Advisory Council

In 2016, Metro formed a Faith Leaders’ Advisory Council based in the South Los Angeles community to inform, solicit feedback and engage in dialogue about a variety of Metro projects, programs, and initiatives.

Multifaith Leaders Outreach

Metro dialogues with a diverse range of faith leaders in LA County to inform and seek input on those Metro projects and programs that are considered essential to support social change and community development. Such projects, programs and initiatives include joint development, transit-oriented communities, homelessness outreach, security, and career pathways. Whether by joining project working groups, co-hosting meetings or participating in Metro’s Faith Leaders Advisory Council in South Los Angeles, faith leaders are encouraged to engage with Metro.

DASH Observatory Bus

From 2016-2017, our Special Projects team collaborated with LA Department of Transportation (LADOT), LA Department of Recreation and Parks, and Friends of the Observatory to organize and conduct outreach to raise awareness about the LADOT DASH shuttle to the Griffith Observatory. The daily DASH bus service connects with Metro’s Red Line Sunset/Vermont station, creating more opportunities for riders to experience all the amenities offered at Griffith Park and the Observatory. LADOT’s expanded shuttle service now bridges the first/last mile gap and will benefit users of both systems to get where they need to go.
