Public meeting on Metro bag checks
[This post has been updated]
The Metro Riders' Advisory Council (RAC) will hold a public meeting on Monday, Jan. 3, to discuss the controversial random bag inspections that Metro police launched last month in an effort to discourage terrorist attacks on the transit system.
"Due to the great public concern over this program, the RAC would like to hear from riders about their experience and opinions, and has also invited the Metro Transit Police Department (MTPD) to present and answer questions," said RAC Vice Chairman David Alpert in a statement announcing the meeting.
The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Monday in the committee room of Metro's headquarters at 600 5th St. NW.
The Riders' Advisory Council is composed of 21 members from the District, Maryland, and Virginia including at-large members and the chairman of the Accessibility Advisory Committee. Members are appointed by the Metro board of directors to represent a cross-section of riders of Metro's rail, bus, and paratransit system.
