Draft Potential Ballot Measure Expenditure Plan

Los Angeles County is expected to grow by 2.4 million people by 2057. Metro is updating its Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) to enhance mobility and quality of life for LA County to position the region for future growth and meet transportation needs.

The foundation for the updated LRTP is a Draft Expenditure Plan which provides a vision, through nine categories of funding, for the variety of transit-related infrastructure and programs needed to build and operate a balanced multi-modal transportation system.

Metro Eases Traffic

Metro operates one of America’s largest transportation systems, with 450 million bus and rail boardings last year. And we also serve LA County as transit, freeway and local roads funder, planner, coordinator, designer, builder, and operator. All told, Metro projects have created 400,000 jobs in Southern California since 2008, and voter-passed Measure R has added an estimated $32 billion to LA County’s economy.

Metro Rail Facts

Metro eases traffic with more Metro Rail lines and stations.

  • Metro’s subway and light rail lines deliver 64 million rides each year
  • We’re opening six new Gold Line stations and seven new Expo line stations in the coming months
  • The Purple Line subway extension, now under construction, will move millions between Downtown and Westwood with seven new stations built in three phases
  • We’re building the Regional Connector project, adding three new downtown LA stations and eliminating transfers between rail lines to streamline commutes

Highway Facts

Metro eases traffic by tackling bottlenecks.
