BART to hold meetings throughout Bay Area in June 

BART will hold 18 community meetings in an array of Bay Area cities next month to discuss a series of crucial issues affecting the agency.

The forums will focus on the potential for service fare reductions due to a $4 million budget surplus, and defining what “major service changes” mean to a community.

Fare reductions are among a series of possibilities being mulled over by the agency, which unexpectedly received $26 million from the state earlier this year, which has contributed to its budget surplus.

The agency is also trying to do a better job of reaching out to minority communities, following admonishment from the federal government for failing to provide better communication during the process of establishing a project to connect with the Oakland Airport.

The first of the 18 meeting meetings is scheduled for June 8, in The City’s Chinatown neighborhood. The meeting will take place at the Chinatown Community Development Center on 663 Clay Street. It’s scheduled to last from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
