Your request is overly broad and burdensome as Metro has over 15,000 bus stops with a unique announcement, not including rail and any extra announcements. Also, recordings may be protected by copyright or may be privileged information. Thus, this request is denied per Gov. Code 6254(k).

Metro's NextRequest (Public Records Tracking System) is maintained in compliance with Metro's records retention policy and records schedule. Requests and attachments will be removed from this system according to Metro’s records retention schedule.  This is to maintain the consistency and integrity of the records management program, as well as the utility of this system.

 If applicable, please note:

  • Email messages/mailbox files will be deleted 1 Month after request closure.
  • Videos are not hosted here. DVDs not retrieved by requestors will be destroyed 2 years after request closure.
  • The records requests themselves and any attachments will be deleted 3 Years after request closure.

If records are made available, please make sure you access/download/pick-up the records as soon as possible.  System records will be removed automatically at their expiration periods. Use of this system is not intended to extend or reduce Metro's adopted retention schedule time periods.

You may contact me at canow@metro.net if you have any questions related to this public records request.

While we are more than happy to oblige your request, we are unable to do so at this time as the wording and time frame are vague; Government Code 6253(b) asks that a request "reasonably [describe] an identifiable record or records." If you would like, please narrow your terms-more specifically, by way of a contract number(s) and date range so that we can initiate a search to determine whether or not LACMTA has any of the records you seek.
