The community fair will be held on Saturday, April 24 from 11 a m. to 3 p.m. at 3535 S. La Cienega Blvd. in the parking lot adjacent to the Target Store at La Cienega and Rodeo.
"We encourage residents of the area as well as Metro patrons to stop by and visit with us as we showcase various aspects of what Metro is all about," said Metro Westside/Central Service Sector General Manager Jim McElroy.
Various information booths will be set up as well as displays that will include a new state-of-the-art Metro Rapid Bus, a vintage transit bus completely restored, a Culver City Transit bus as well as a bike safety rodeo for the kids co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Unified School District. Metro Westside/Central staff will be on hand providing information on Metro Services and projects including a planned light rail line that would run along the nearby Exposition right-of-way. Historical information about the area will be on display, prepared by the Metro Library and information on job and contracting opportunities at the MTA also will be provided.
Prizes donated by McDonalds will be given out to the first 150 kids to successfully complete the Bike Safety Rodeo and a grand prize of a brand new bike and bike accessories, offered by Target, will be up for grabs by entering a raffle.
