The Livermore/Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), operator of WHEELS, is seeking comment on their operations and input into their Short Range Transit Plan 2004-2012. This is your opportunity to give feedback directly to WHEELS, express interest in new routing, offer your critique of the system or compliment the things you appreciate.

Comment Period
As part of their planning process, LAVTA prepares a Short Range Transit Plan to evaluate system productivity and overall performance. Members of the public are invited to give comment on this plan. All comments are needed by Friday, September 5, 2003 on the current plan. The Association can also forward comments to WHEELS on your behalf as part of our review. A draft of the Short Range Transit Plan will be posted online at www.wheelsbus.com.
