Feds order MTA review of service changes
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Los Angeles County transportation officials have been ordered to review transit service cuts from three years ago to see if they were unfair to riders.
The Federal Transit Administration made the demand Monday in a stern letter that refers to the "disturbing findings" of a civil rights investigation into policies and practices at the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
The FTA says a civil rights investigation has uncovered a failure by MTA to conduct proper analysis and impact of the changes in service to the community that were fair and nondiscriminatory.
Metro replied in a statement that the FTA order makes no new findings, does not document any civil rights violations and acknowledges that the agency has solved some of its previously cited problems.
