Metro has a plan to create more mobility options. It includes creating safe and convenient ways to get to and from rail stations and bus stops. At some point in every trip, everyone relies on active transportation such as walking, bicycling or rolling.
What are the benefits of active transportation?
Active transportation enhances the quality of life for those who live, work and play in LA County. Walking, bicycling and rolling offer many benefits that are good for the environment and a healthy lifestyle. With active transportation options, we can reduce transportation costs, support the local economy, decrease greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion, and promote public health with more opportunities for physical activity.
How is Metro supporting active transportation?
Metro is participating and leading a number of bike and pedestrian projects and programs to advance active transportation throughout the county. Our roles include funding designation, policy and regional leadership, transit network planning and access improvements, and education and promotion. For more details, please see our Active Transportation Strategic Plan, which we are in the process of updating.
By buildinga regional network for people who choose to take transit and walk, bike or use other human-powered means, we can foster healthy, equitable and thriving communities with jobs, medical facilities, schools and recreation.
