Long Beach Transit invites resident input

Long Beach Transit invites resident input

The Long Beach Transit Systemwide Transit Analysis and Reassessment (STAR) Initiative launched in 2017 to evaluate service investments and consider changes to LBT’s services and routes to improve people’s ability to move around the Long Beach area.

Based on the input from the public, the STAR Initiative project team has developed a roadmap for improving LBT’s service over the next five to 10 years.

STAR is hosting community meetings this month to present these recommendations on route and service changes. Attend a meeting to get information and provide your feedback.
