Seven cities have teamed up to buy five 15-passenger vans and will run their own dollar-a-ride shuttle service. The shuttles will help commuters without cars get to places more quickly than on Metropolitan Transportation Authority buses and at a fraction of the cost of a taxi ride. Urban planners expect the vans, fueled by natural gas, to help cut air pollution as well. The participating cities are Bell, Bell Gardens, Commerce, Huntington Park, Maywood, South Gate and Vernon.

At a public forum attended by more than 200 people Wednesday night, the Santa Clarita City Council heard overwhelming opposition to plans to open a garbage dump outside the city in Elsmere Canyon.
