Board meets in community
Submitted By Clarence Johnson
In an effort to increase public input and make its meeting more accessible, the AC Transit Board of Directors will convene its regularly scheduled meeting in Fremont on Wednesday, October 24, 2012, at Fremont City Council Chambers instead of at the AC Transit headquarters in Downtown Oakland. The change of venue will give southern Alameda County bus riders and the general public an opportunity to more easily attend and participate in a board meeting.
"As a Board, we think it is essential to come to where our riders are because we understand they cannot always come to us,'' said Board President Elsa Ortiz. "It's important for us to see the people in the communities we serve, for the residents to be able to meet us and ask questions face-to-face. It's the way the process is supposed to be."
The meeting will begin at 5:00 p.m. at the Fremont City Council Chambers, 3300 Capitol Avenue, Fremont. The meeting agenda is available on AC Transit website (see "Board meetings" on the homepage).
As at all board meetings, attendees may comment on any item on the agenda by signing up to speak when they arrive. Additionally, during "Public Comment" at the beginning of the meeting, the public may also speak about items not on the agenda.
Among other things, the Board is expected to consider: service and operations in southern Alameda County; Dumbarton Express service; five-year plan for procurement of new buses; and costs of implementing a passenger notification system for missed trips and other unexpected service disruptions.
