The Bus Riders Union said Friday it will seek a four-year extension to the federal consent decree governing the MTA unless Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa can forge an agreement to improve service. The group hopes the mayor, who chairs the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board, will voluntarily support the extension or convince the agency to expand service in order to avert further litigation. “We’re reaching out to the mayor to provide some leadership,” said BRU organizer Manuel Criollo. “It’s all in the mayor and MTA board’s court at this moment.” Villaraigosa said Friday he does not support extending the consent decree. But the MTA insists it plans to fully implement the court’s orders. “There’s an ongoing commitment by Metro to maintain a high level of quality service,” said MTA spokesman Marc Littman. “With all the time and energy that’s been spent improving the Metro system, we’re not going to renege on that.” Lisa Mascaro, (818) 713-3761 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The MTA agreed to the consent decree in 1996 to settle a lawsuit that claimed bus riders’ civil rights were violated when the MTA proposed a fare hike for the bus system while it was building suburban rail. The 10-year decree is set to expire in October, and a court-appointed monitor said this week the MTA had made substantial progress in improving the bus system. However, the court also required MTA to buy 134 more buses to expand the Metro Rapid express system and ensure over the next five years buses run frequently and operating funds are not diverted from other routes. The BRU said it needs some way to ensure MTA’s compliance with the orders.
