Mid-Coast Trolley Feeder Bus Study

Greetings —

The MTS staff will be presenting the results of their Mid-Coast Trolley Feeder Bus Study to the MTS Board at their regular monthly meeting next week, Thursday, February 13th. The report will not be available to the public until then, I am told. If there is public comment invited, I will iterate the community group (LJ & PB) resolutions on shuttle bus connection. I will try to get copies of what is handed out. I will plan to report to the La Jolla Traffic & Transportation Board at their February 19th meeting.

From agendas of past MTS Board meetings I see they are long and wide ranging. The start time is 9 AM. The meetings take place at 1255 Imperial Avenue. Agendas are posted at
