The operator of the Wheels bus system and the Tri-Valley Rapid will hold a community meeting from 6-8 p.m. this evening at the Pleasanton Senior Center to gain the public's views on how to improve service.
Called "Wheels Forward," the initiative by the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), is aimed at evaluating existing transit service in an effort to make improvements.
Agency representatives want to know how Wheels can better serve the public's needs so that they can plan for a more efficient transit system that carries a greater number of riders and provides a platform for future improvements, said Don Biddle, LAVTA board chairman and a Dublin City Councilman.
"The Wheels bus system has been a great community partner in the Tri-Valley for the past 30 years," Biddle said. "There's never been a better time for residents to get involved as we plan for an even more successful Wheels moving forward."

Wheels was founded in 1985 by the cities of Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore and Alameda County. Financial support comes from fares, federal, state and local subsidies and Measure B. The system serves nearly 2 million customers a year.
