Metro’s board of directors is holding its last meetings of the year on Thursday. The list includes everything from the Safety and Security Committee, and a discussion of crime on Metro, which the transit authority says is down this quarter, to a strategic planning session, reports from the finance committee, real estate deals and appointments to the Riders’ Advisory Council.

Washington Post staff writer Dana Hedgpeth is on the ground covering it all. Follow her tweets live below or on Twitter, @postmetrogirl.
