Metro Committees


What do committees do?

Metro is currently composed of 7 Committees. Committees set policy and discuss matters related to the transit system in Los Angeles County.

In addition to these committees, other entities are created by state statute, or by the Board for gathering public input in support of various public purposes beyond routine monthly business. For example, the Service Authority for Freeway Emergencies (SAFE) which oversees:
