New, 8 comments

A divided Metro board voted to under take "sweeping cuts to its bus service" according to the Los Angeles Times. "Plans call for nine lines to be eliminated in late June and for 11 to be scaled back through actions such as discontinuing weekend service. The changes will result in a total reduction of 305,000 service hours in 2012—about 4% of all bus hours—and will drop Metro's peak operating fleet to about 1,900 buses." The Source has also has more analysis (and why Metro head Art Leahy thinks this is a good thing), while Streetsblog is running a poll, asking people to weigh in. Friday fun! [LAT, Source, Streetsblog]
