The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) earlier this month launched a pilot program to gather input on how the agency can improve the quality of life in Los Angeles County.
As part of the program, LA Metro is hosting quarterly virtual sessions, called "Metro Conversations," to prompt a conversation between the public and the agency.
The first one, held Nov. 19, reviewed how the agency should engage with homeless riders. The session featured speakers from LA Metro's security and law enforcement department, as well as from People Assisting the Homeless, LA Metro's homeless outreach partner.
Speakers discussed the agency's Shelter the Unsheltered program, which has helped more than 580 people who had been sleeping on the LA Metro system find housing.
