Pasadena residents and frequent Metro patrons will definitely find it useful to take part in Metro’s live and interactive Telephone Town Hall on Thursday, Oct. 19, so they could provide some input as the transportation agency plans its budget for the 2025 fiscal year.
The town hall begins at 6 p.m. and will take about an hour, Metro said in an announcement.
The event will be an open platform for all participants, including those from Pasadena, to share their insights and suggestions on Metro’s initiatives, which encompass crucial aspects such as public safety, cleanliness, and the overall customer experience on the Metro transit system. Public participation is an integral component of shaping the budget in accordance with the community’s priorities.
Metro said it will use an innovative automated system to randomly contact approximately 100,000 residents from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds across Los Angeles County, including Pasadena. Residents also have the option to pre-register for this event.
When participants answer their phones, they will be automatically connected to Metro’s meeting in English, with a dedicated option for Spanish-speaking participants – they can choose Spanish as their preferred language for the discussion. This inclusive approach ensures that individuals can comfortably provide input and pose questions in their language of choice.
