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.
Faith Leaders’ Advisory Council
In 2016, Metro formed a Faith Leaders’ Advisory Council based in the South Los Angeles community in order to inform, engage and solicit feedback about Metro projects, programs, and initiatives that have particular importance in South LA. The established partnership with this faith community seeks to further engage in a dialogue about issues facing members of the South LA communities, such as local jobs.
