This evening the East-West Gateway Council of Governments will host the beginning of a series of community meetings to gather feedback on plans to spur development near MetroLink Stops.
Britt Palmberg is with the consulting group that put a study on the issue, which focused on five stations.
He says the hope is to develop a framework that local stakeholders can use to kick start economic development.
The regional planning agency East-West Gateway Council of Governments is asking the public what it wants to see in transit-oriented development around five MetroLink stations
Starting tonight, East-West Gateway will hold a series of open houses. A complete list of locations is below.
Starting this Monday morning Metro Transit is changing the way it handles ticket validation for MetroLink trains.
Here are three big things riders need to know about the new system.
First, vending machines won’t automatically print the expiration time on tickets or passes; you’ll have to do that separately.
Which leads to number two, the new system will make it much easier to buy tickets in advance and not use them right away.
And Third, Metro Spokesperson Diane Williams says you really don’t want to forget to validate your ticket.
