Metro’s Community Education (MCE) Team is responsible for increasing transit safety awareness and providing education to residents of Los Angeles County who interact with Metro’s public transportation system through various safety programs. This includes safety on Metro’s rail lines, bus system, and bicycles.
The programs service diverse communities across the county with a strong emphasis in the neighborhoods within a 1.5-mile radius from all Metro at-grade light rail lines. The MCE Team employs a comprehensive community outreach plan that engages schools, community centers, libraries, health institutions, and places of worship year-round. In addition, outreach is extended to communities with access to Metro’s transit system.
MCE’s programs enhance transit safety through informative and site-specific presentations, Rail Safety Orientation Tours, participation at community events, deployment of Rail Safety Ambassadors, and outreach to the older adult community. Metro’s Community Education team understands the diversity of Los Angeles County and tailors its outreach efforts to achieve effective community engagement.
