The Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), operator of the Wheels bus system, is hosting two public outreach meetings for the public to learn and comment on their Short-Range Transit Plan. The Short-Range Transit Plan is a rolling five-year plan that lays out the strategies for meeting the transportation and livability goals for the Tri-Valley. You can participate in the process by attending one of their commuter outreach meetings being held on May 16th and May 24th.

Public Outreach Meeting
Join LAVTA and provide your input on Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at the Pleasanton Library or on Thursday, May 24, 2007 at the Livermore Civic Library. The meetings will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 pm and will include an informal open house at which you can learn more about Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), a new approach to buses that combines the best features of rail with the flexibility and cost advantage of roadway-based transit. Highlights of the meetings will include presentations on LAVTA's Short-Range Transit Plan, local service plan review, frequent service routes, transit-oriented development and service enhancement through the Route 10R Corridor
