Building our Mobility

Message from the CEO

Los Angeles County took a major step forward last year when an impressive 71 percent of voters approved Measure M – Metro’s bold ballot measure to improve public transportation infrastructure, air quality and quality of life. In a region where more than 80 percent of commuters drive to work, the landslide Measure M vote was a resounding show of faith in the future of transportation in LA County. It also reflects the public’s growing awareness of the need to not only build more transportation, but also to care for our existing system through dedicated funding for state of good repair projects.

The Measure M plan will deliver 40 major capital projects in 40 years. The funds generated by the new sales tax provide dedicated funding for many transportation improvements in LA County, including new transit and highway projects, increased funding for countywide transit operations, increased funding for local transportation projects in all 88 jurisdictions of LA County, new bike and pedestrian connections, and programs for seniors, students and persons with disabilities. Measure M builds on the vision for the future that was established by Measure R, further enhancing Metro’s ability to ease traffic, keep the system in good working condition, and provide more transportation options for current and future generations.

The FY18 budget is balanced at $6.1 billion in total agency expenditures, an increase of only 1.4 percent from the prior year. This change is less than the Consumer Price Index, which is an indicator of inflation, clearly demonstrating our commitment to fiscal discipline and tight budget controls. As we work to deliver the promises of Measure R and now Measure M, it is Metro’s duty to exercise careful planning and to responsibly spend every dollar the voting public has entrusted us with.

As we continue construction on the largest public works program in the nation, we are working diligently to anticipate long term transportation needs. To improve air quality, our Board has directed us to move toward 100 percent zero emission buses, and we are currently exploring the technology that will help lead us in that direction. We’re also focused on Active Transportation: in FY17, Metro launched a new Bike Share system. This innovative project expands the transportation landscape by addressing first/last mile connectivity with access to new transportation options.

Safety and security improvements are of the utmost importance as our system continues to grow. Metro now has law enforcement contracts with three agencies: the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Long Beach Police Department. This new multi-agency policing strategy will increase the number of law enforcement personnel patrolling the system, improve response times and save taxpayer money, all while enhancing safety on our buses and rail cars.

In July, we signed new five-year contracts with our transit labor unions, which represent operators, maintenance workers, clerks, customer service agents, transportation supervisors, maintenance supervisors and security officers. We value our employees and the important work they do, and we are proud to have been able to achieve labor contracts that provide living wage jobs, competitive salaries and good benefits. Our goal is to support the well-being of our employees, the public and our entire system, and these agreements are a big step in that direction.

We are grateful to the voters of LA County for their trust in our ability to deliver this massive transportation infrastructure program and to our Board of Directors for their leadership, as we continue the transportation revolution already in progress and prepare our region for the next century and beyond.

Measure M

Metro’s ambitious plan for the future of transportation in Los Angeles County was met with resounding approval when 71% of voters on November 8, 2016, said “yes” to Measure M, which asked: “To improve freeway traffic flow/safety; repair potholes/sidewalks; repave local streets; earthquake-retrofit bridges; synchronize signals; keep senior/disabled/student
fares affordable; expand rail/subway/bus systems; improve job/school/airport connections; and create jobs; shall voters
authorize a Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan through a ½ ¢ traffic relief tax until voters decide to end it, with
independent audits/oversight and funds controlled locally?”

The Measure M Ordinance

Measure M, also known as the Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan, was carefully developed by a crossdepartmental task force of Metro staff over several months. Following the plan’s public release, the Board of Directors unanimously approved placing the sales tax measure on the November 2016 ballot. Thanks to Metro’s comprehensive plan to improve mobility throughout the region and the optimistic vision of the future of transportation in Los Angeles County that it inspired, the Measure M Ordinance was successfully passed into law on Election Day.

Beginning on July 1, 2017, local sales taxes were increased by a half cent. These funds must be used and allocated by Metro as described in the Measure M Ordinance. As with Los Angeles County’s previously approved transportation sales taxes, Measure M is split into defined subfunds. Each of these subfunds has specific restrictions and expenditure guidelines that are outlined in the Measure M Ordinance and further explained in the Measure M Master Guidelines. For further details on each Measure M subfund, plus a breakdown of the estimated Measure M revenues for FY18 by subfund, refer to pages 14-15.

Integration with Measure R

For nearly a decade, Measure R has acted as the single largest local funding source for the transit capital building boom currently underway in Los Angeles County. Thanks in large part to the sales taxes generated by Measure R, Metro has completed several key transportation infrastructure improvement projects in recent years, including the Gold Line Foothill Extension to Azusa and the Expo Line Extension to Santa Monica.

Measure R is set to expire on June 30, 2039. Therefore, many Measure R projects were in various stages of planning or construction at the time when Measure M was being developed. To maximize the impact of both sales tax measures, Measure M will both augment and extend the work that was launched by Measure R. In fact, all ongoing and future Measure R projects are included in the construction timeline of Measure M, and many will be on an accelerated project delivery schedule thanks to the additional funding provided by the new sales tax measure.

As we fast-track existing plans to improve transportation in Los Angeles County, we are aiming to ease congestion and increase transit ridership for our growing population. By the time the Olympics arrive in 2028, Los Angeles County will be well into its transformation thanks to Measures R and M working together to deliver many more projects, including but not limited to the Crenshaw/LAX light rail line, the Regional Connector that links light rail lines in downtown Los Angeles, the Airport Metro Connector, the Westside Purple Line Extension from Wilshire/Western to Westwood and the Gold Line Foothill Extension to Claremont.

The Transit Operating and Maintenance subfund will generate new revenues for transit operations and maintenance expenses
throughout the region, including:

  • Metro Rail Operations (5%) , eligible for both transit operations and state of good repair projects on the Metro Rail system
  • Transit Operations (20%) , which funds transit service, maintenance and expansion for Metro and municipal providers, and will be allocated to transit operators throughout the county according to the Board-approved Formula Allocation Procedure
  • ADA Paratransit for the Disabled and Metro Discounts for Seniors and Students (2%), which will be used to maintain and improve ADA paratransit services for people with disabilities in Los Angeles County and to fund Metro fare discounts for low income seniors and student riders

Transit, First/Last Mile (Capital)

The Transit, First/Last Mile subfund will generate new revenues for transit capital improvements and transit system access enhancements that are listed in the Measure M Ordinance.

This subfund is further split into two project subcategories:

  • Transit Construction (35%) , for the major transit construction projects listed in the expenditure plan attached to the Measure M Ordinance, including defined groundbreaking start dates and expected opening dates
  • Metro State of Good Repair (2%) , which will fund the repair, replacement and rehabilitation of Metro assets required for its rail transit vehicle fleet, systems, engineering and stations

Highway, Active Transportation, Complete Streets (Capital)

The Highway, Active Transportation, Complete Streets subfund will generate new revenues that will work to improve all modes of travel throughout Los Angeles County, including highways, streets, bikeways and pedestrian pathways. The individual programs included in this subfund are:

  • Highway Construction (17%) , for the major highway construction projects as listed in the expenditure planattached to the Measure M Ordinance, including defined groundbreaking start dates and expected opening dates
  • Metro Active Transportation (2%) , which will establish a dedicated funding source for improvements to non-motorized transportation via walking, bicycling or rolling modes

Local Return/Regional Rail

The Local Return/Regional Rail subfund will generate new revenues that will be passed through Metro and paid to local jurisdictions for local transportation improvements and to Metrolink for various regional rail projects. These two programs are separately defined in the Measure M Ordinance as described below:

  • Local Return (17%), will provide 88 cities and unincorporated Los Angeles County with additional funding based onpopulation shares to be expended based on locally determined transportation priorities and needs
  • Regional Rail (1%), which will fund regional commuter rail service within Los Angeles County, including operating,maintenance, expansion and state of good repair costs

Budget Highlights

Metro (LACMTA)

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, branded as “Metro,” adopted a $6.1 billion balanced budget for Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18). Metro’s FY18 budget marks the start of funding from Measure M, the Los Angeles County transportation sales tax measure that was approved by voters in November 2016. This exciting new local revenue stream will supplement existing funding sources as Metro Rail expansion continues in FY18.

This year, construction is ongoing on three major rail lines: the Regional Connector, Crenshaw/LAX and the Purple Line Extension. We will break ground on the Airport Metro Connector, as we commence real estate acquisitions, final design efforts and early construction mobilization for 96th Street Transit Station. We are also working to complete environmental studies and preliminary engineering for the Gold Line Foothill Extension 2B to Claremont, slated to break ground in FY19. With so many projects in the works, there is a bright future ahead as we continue to improve our transportation infrastructure.

FY18 Budget Process

Every dollar in the FY18 budget has been explicitly linked to one of our agency goals. This new practice enables us to track our ongoing costs in relation to our objectives, which will result in a quantifiable measure of the efforts expended to move toward specific achievements. This approach is designed to further reinforce Metro’s commitment to tight budget controls, strategic monitoring of performance and the improvement of accountability. As we work to find better ways to assess what we do and how we do it, we are also refining our ability to ensure our success.

Public outreach efforts have increased significantly over the years in order to better inform the public about Metro’s budget and to solicit further input into the budget process, and this year’s budget development process included the most extensive outreach efforts to date. Expanded public engagement for FY18 included an interactive online budgeting tool, which gathered input from the public by asking a series of questions on transportation priorities to develop a customized Metro budget. In addition, an interactive telephone town hall meeting was held in which participants were able to call in to learn about what the agency is doing this year and voice their concerns. This new forum successfully allowed individuals unable to attend in-person meetings an opportunity to weigh in on the budget process by directly conversing with Metro staff and the Finance & Budget Committee Chair.

METRO BUDGET: FY18 vs FY17

Thanks to ongoing efforts to control costs , the FY 18 budget represents just a 1.5% increase from the prior year. As a share of Metro’s entire budget:

  • Capital expenses decreased from 42% to 37%, primarily due to the offsetting impact of the I-405settlement executed in FY17.
  • Operations expenses increased from 27% to 28%, mainly due to the restructuring of Transit Security efforts and an increase in unit costs for purchased transportation.
  • Subsidy Funding Programs increased from 22% to 25% as a direct result of additional funding from the growth in sales tax revenues plus new revenues from Measure M. This results in additional funding for local jurisdictions and transit operators throughout the county.
  • Debt Service increased from 5% to 6%, as specified in year-over-year changes in the debt repayment schedule as approved by the Board at the time of debt authorization.
  • General Planning & Programs and Congestion Management remained relatively stable, accounting for 5% of the total in both the FY 18 and FY 17 budgets.

Improved Transit Services

FY18 Transit Service Levels

As our system expands, it is increasingly important to regularly reassess the service we provide to minimize duplication and improve efficiency. In FY18, although bus service is projected to remain constant at FY17 levels, Operations plans to right-size the services provided along bus lines that parallel the Expo Line. Services will be strategically reallocated to improve the Owl Network and to increase peak frequencies on select bus lines. By reducing duplicative service and simultaneously increasing service where demand is high, we are looking to optimize our bus system with our available resources.

Thanks to delivery of new light rail vehicles, FY18 marks the first year when sufficient rail cars will be available to meet growing demand on the Expo Line and Gold Line. The service planned for FY18 represents an 11.6% increase in revenue service hours compared to FY17, when service levels on these lines were limited by vehicle availability. In addition, rail special event service is being added to meet the spikes in ridership demand due to games at sports venues and other special events. As we continue to adjust the service we provide in relation to shifting ridership demands, we are working to boost mobility where it is needed most.

Increased Focus on Sustainability

In order to achieve the Board of Directors’ goal of operating a 100% zero emissions bus fleet by 2030, procurements are in the works for two new contracts that will provide Metro with up to 100 40-foot and 100 60-foot electric buses for operation on the Orange Line and Silver Line. The award recommendations for both of these contracts are expected in the first quarter of FY18, moving us toward increasingly sustainable bus operations.

As we move toward an electric bus fleet, it is of the utmost importance to stay up to date with the most cutting edge technologies. The newest bus engines on the market meet the requirements for California AB 857 Near Zero emissions and are certified by the California Air Resources Board. In FY18, Metro will begin procuring and installing these engines in the existing fleet, and the same engines will arrive installed in buses delivered under the current bus procurement. These Near Zero emission engines operate on renewable natural gas, and their use will result in a 36% reduction in nitrogen oxide pollutants and a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

Fare Payment Improvements

While we expand and improve our transportation infrastructure, we are also looking for ways to improve our fare payment options and enhance the related customer experience. Beginning in FY18, the TAP fare payment system will be integrated with Metro Bike Share, and patrons will be able to use TAP stored value to seamlessly pay for both transit and bike rentals. This new feature will strengthen the Metro Bike Share program’s role as a convenient First/Last Mile option, thus increasing the ease of access to our transit system.

We are also transitioning our reduced fare programs for low income transit riders onto TAP. This move will eliminate the administrative complexity of the paper coupons currently in use, simplifying and streamlining the process of redeeming program benefits. Furthermore, even transit riders who do not use Metro Bike Share or qualify for low income discounts will find easier access to TAP in FY18, thanks to a growing third party vendor network that will now include many grocery stores throughout Los Angeles County.

Safety & Security

To enhance customer and employee safety , full deployment of Metro’s new multi-agency law enforcement contracts will begin in FY18. Prior to the implementation of the new multiagency approach, law enforcement on the transit system was provided by a single agency, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Based on an in-depth review of the security and policing strategy with industry experts and policing professionals, staff concluded that a multi-agency law enforcement services contract model is the best strategy for providing a consistent and reliable law enforcement presence and therefore the best option for assuring the safety of Metro’s patrons and employees countywide.

Beginning in FY18, law enforcement services will be provided by three agencies: the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the Los Angeles Police Department and the Long Beach Police Department. Under the three new contracts, law enforcement presence will increase from a fluctuating range of 140 to 200 personnel per 24-hour operating period to a consistent 314 personnel per 24-hour operating period. In addition, response times will be improved by more than 50%. Meanwhile, we are also enhancing our ability to monitor the success of our shifting security methodology, as the more stringent terms of the new contracts will ensure greater contract compliance through the inclusion of clear performance metrics and accountability measures.

This year, we will extend our focus on security and law enforcement community outreach in order to distribute safety information to our customers and provide an enhanced ridership experience. We will also continue to emphasize the work of the Metro Homeless Task Force, which was assembled to address the impact of the homeless presence on our transit system. Metro is creating a strategic plan to develop a coordinated and comprehensive approach to this issue that aligns with the County and City of Los Angeles’ priorities, maintains a safe and clean environment for patrons and connects homeless persons in the transit system to the appropriate services and resources.

First/Last Mile

While we build out our transportation infrastructure, we must also focus on the ease of access to both existing and new transit lines. In FY17, the First/Last Mile program made important progress in improving access to our older rail lines by creating First/Last Mile Improvement Plans for the areas around all 22 Blue Line stations. To improve understanding of First/Last Mile issues throughout the region, the program is also focused on developing and conducting training programs for local staff and officials. To ensure that this knowledge is applied to our expanding system, the team will continue to focus on new First/Last Mile connections for future capital projects.

Planned activities for FY18 include completion of Blue Line station area plans, commencement of work on Purple Line station area plans, finalization of Capital Project First/Last Mile Integration Guidelines, and the initiation of planning activities for both City of Inglewood stations and Gold Line Extension Phase 2B stations. Additionally, to encourage the use of transit to access green spaces throughout the region, the work plan includes completion of the Transit to Open Space and Parks Strategic Plan. As we improve the connections between our communities and our transit system, we aim to maximize transit usage by simplifying transit access.

Operating Capital

In FY18, we continue our commitment to keeping our system in top form by dedicating $253 million to State of Good Repair (SGR), which is an element of the operating capital program. To ensure our system is safe and reliable, we must emphasize SGR as a major regional transportation priority that is just as important as building transit projects and providing transit service. As we take a proactive approach to continuously maintaining our assets, we are directly improving our ability to deliver more passengers on time without interruptions.

SGR capital improvements for FY18 include completion of delivery on the last of the 900 40-foot CNG buses procured in earlier fiscal years. Procurement will begin for new 40-foot and articulated bus acquisitions, while bus midlife and engine replacements will restore our older vehicles. Similar projects will be undertaken for our rail lines, with contract awards anticipated for new heavy rail vehicles and heavy rail vehicle overhauls, as well as continued delivery of new light rail vehicles and progress on light rail vehicle overhauls.

To update our rail stations, SGR improvements are being made to the Willowbrook/Rosa Parks Station, the transfer point between the Blue Line and Green Line. Furthermore, escalators in the aging Red Line stations will be modernized and rehabilitated to improve access to our transit system. Meanwhile, nonrevenue vehicle replacements will provide more reliable transportation for Metro staff and improve response times for service needs and emergencies.Operating capital by category

Safety & Security Improvements

Metro defines operating capital as an investment for the repair, rehabilitation and replacement required to maintain reliable, safe, effective and efficient transit service. An operating capital program that achieves this vision requires enhancing and improving the transit system with up-to-date safety features and technological improvements that address security concerns in today’s environment.

This year, the majority of rail safety and security capital improvements are planned for the oldest Metro Rail line, with $19 million budgeted for improvements on the Blue Line. Infrastructure upgrades are being made to enhance pedestrian safety at grade crossings, and the signal system continues to be rehabilitated on both the Blue Line and the Green Line to ensure that trains can travel safely on our expanding rail system.

Construction of the Red Line Universal City pedestrian bridge is expected to be completed in FY18, and work will continue on the Red Line to Orange Line pedestrian underpass at North Hollywood Station. These projects will improve safety by eliminating the necessity of crossing vehicular traffic when traveling to or between these stations on foot. Finally, to enhance systemwide safety and security, improvements to the Emergency Operations Center will continue through FY18, as will security upgrades to the Universal Fare System.

New Projects

Increased Options in Active Transportation

Active transportation refers to human-powered methods of travel, such as walking, bicycling or rolling to get from one place to another. In FY18, Metro is pursuing several projects and programs to advance active transportation and provide more travel options throughout the county.

This year we will continue to expand our network of Metro Bike Hubs, which provide secure access, high-capacity bicycle parking and on-site staff during specified hours. The first Metro Bike Hub opened in 2015 at El Monte Station, and the second opened at Hollywood/Vine in May 2017. In FY18, the Union Station Bike Hub is scheduled to be completed, and the construction of the Culver City Bike Hub will be well underway.

Future locations are also planned at North Hollywood, Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and the Airport Metro Connector. As the program grows, we are clearly moving toward achieving the Metro Bike Hubs vision to create a network of First/Last Mile solutions for riders who choose to bike to and from key transit stations.

Customer Code of Conduct Campaigns

In FY18, Metro’s Communications staff will continue to focus on providing customers with useful and educational information to improve the rider experience with its new Customer Code of Conduct campaigns. In FY18, we will seek to educate and empower our riders with the Metro Manners campaign, which will highlight the crucial role we all play in creating a safe and pleasant transit riding experience for everyone. This new program will focus on three of the most common etiquette complaints on our transit system: seat hogging, eating and aisle blocking.

Meanwhile, the TAP with Pride campaign will stress the importance and benefits of properly loading and tapping a TAP card. Through this new customer education effort, we aim to provide riders with useful fare payment training and information, while simultaneously increasing fare payment compliance and reducing fare media misuse.

Public-Private Partnership Development

Metro has begun evaluating the benefits of alternative project delivery via Public-Private Partnership (P3) models. To date, Metro has received several unsolicited proposals for its current and future infrastructure projects: three for the West Santa Ana Branch Light Rail project, three for the Sepulveda Pass Transit Corridor, one for the Purple Line Extension and one for the Orange Line conversion to light rail. Metro is currently developing a potential strategy and assessing additional information for these projects to evaluate whether a P3 could drive cost savings, improve project performance, harness innovations or accelerate project delivery timelines. Metro anticipates advancing to a procurement process for at least one of these projects in FY18.

In addition to transit capital projects, the private sector has also expressed an interest in involvement with Metro’s Congestion Management activities: an unsolicited proposal was submitted regarding a new financing approach that may facilitate accelerated expansion of the ExpressLanes network. Currently, Metro is working with external financial advisors and internal staff to develop a plan that can capture these benefits and deliver additional mobility options to drivers in Los Angeles County.

As we explore these opportunities and more, there are clearly many promising options for P3 enhancement of Metro’s ongoing expansion in FY18 and beyond.

Metro Bike Share

In partnership with the City of Los Angeles, Metro Bike Share was launched in downtown Los Angeles on July 7, 2016, with 61 stations and 700 bicycles. In the last 11 months, users of the systems have taken more than 160,000 trips, traveled more than 400,000 miles, burned more than 11 million calories and spared the air almost 400,000 pounds of CO2 emissions. These emissions savings are equivalent to the environmental impact of planting and growing 172 acres of forests.

In FY18, we will implement three Metro Bike Share extension areas, including the City of Pasadena with 34 stations on July 14, the Port of LA and Wilmington with 13 stations on July 31 and Venice with 15 stations later in the year. This significant expansion will double the number of Metro Bike Share stations.

We are also looking to reach even further, as we work with other communities on plans to expand the system in the next few years to areas such as Huntington Park, Glendale, Burbank, North Hollywood, East Los Angeles, Exposition Park, Culver City and the San Gabriel Valley.

Parking Management

To address ongoing issues with parking at our stations, Metro has spearheaded a revised approach to parking with several new strategic initiatives. To provide better parking information to potential riders, a new Parking Guidance System is being implemented at targeted high-use facilities to provide realtime parking availability information to customers. To manage demand and restrict parking usage to transit riders, the Parking Management Pilot Program was launched at stations with high demand parking facilities in FY17, including three stations along Expo Phase 2, La Cienega/Jefferson, North Hollywood and Universal City.

With the expansion of the Parking Management Program in FY18, Metro will bring the Supportive Transit Parking Program Master Plan to the Board for adoption. This package will establish a long range plan for parking as we continue to roll out the Parking Management Pilot Program at high demand parking facilities, such as those along the Gold Line Foothill Extension. In addition, Metro seeks to refurbish seven parking facilities, upgrade lighting in parking structures and implement a new parking enforcement program. As we work toward making parking at our stations more safe and convenient, we are encouraging transit ridership by increasing the accessibility to our stations for drivers who may otherwise not use transit

EXPENDITURE ASSUMPTIONS

  • The FY18 budget assumes no increase in bus revenue service hours. Although service does not increase, revenue service hours have been reallocated to improve reliability on our Owl Network, right-size service to increase peak frequencies on priority bus lines and incorporate service support for rail line maintenance and special events.
  • Rail revenue service hours will increase by 11.6% due to the availability of more rail cars to meet the growing demand on the Expo Line and Gold Line, as well as added service necessary to accommodate heavy travel to sports venues and special events. Rail service will also be maximized while crews perform the necessary repair work on the rail lines.
  • The FY18 budget includes the addition of 129 Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) to address new Measure M planning, funding and oversight needs, as well as to comply with the transit project delivery schedule and to pursue pilot programs that will improve the customer experience.
  • Wage and salary increases and health and welfare benefitsfor represented employees are based on Board-adopted contracts at the time of budget adoption.
  • Major funding continues for the big three Measures R and M transit construction projects: Crenshaw/LAX, Regional Connector and Purple Line Extension (Sections 1, 2, and 3). The budget also assumes groundbreaking for Airport Metro Connector in FY18 and Gold Line Foothill Extension 2B to Claremont in FY19.

Delivering Transit & Highway Projects

Metro continues construction of one of the largest public works programs in America. These transit and highway construction projects will improve mobility and increase vehicle capacity, allowing for smoother traffic flow, better system connectivity and more seamless travel for everyone in Los Angeles County.

Thanks to the additional funding provided by Measure M, progress on capital projects will be accelerated in the coming years. With groundbreaking planned on the Airport Metro Connector in FY18 and on the Gold Line Foothill Extension to Claremont in FY19, Metro is delivering more than ever before.

A list of major projects and programs underway in FY18 is shown below.

Operating Capital

Bus and Rail Vehicle Delivery

To support the ongoing operations of a transit system with over one million daily boardings, Metro continues to focus on maintaining its fleet, rail lines, transit stations and facilities in a State of Good Repair (SGR). Bus acquisition activities for FY18 include procurement of two types of buses. Buses scheduled for retirement will be replaced by 53 new Compressed Natural (CNG) buses. To test new technology that will further improve sustainability of our system, 10 new electric buses will be received and tested on the Orange Line and Silver Line. To support the use of these new vehicles, we will begin to establish electric charging station infrastructure.

We are also anticipating the delivery of 48 light rail vehicles during FY18, as well as ramping up the heavy rail vehicle procurement approved by the Board in FY17 for the Purple Line Extension and for the replacement of our aging heavy rail fleet. As our system expands, it is more important than ever to keep our assets up to date in order to ensure that the entire system runs smoothly. The new vehicles being procured and received in FY18 will reduce the average age of our fleet while also making service more reliable and efficient.

Blue Line Signal System Improvements

The Metro Blue Line, our oldest rail line, operates on infrastructure that is over 25 years old. At this point, the essential subsystems for safe and effective rail operations, such as signaling and

overhead catenary systems, are in need of rehabilitation which will begin in FY18. In addition, the Blue Line is currently operating with a limited number of interlockings, which are track work components that allow trains to cross from one track to another. Use of these interlockings is is necessary in multiple situations, such as the need to continue along the line past a disabled train or to avoid a portion of track that is out of service due to planned maintenance. Because there are currently only six interlockings between Washington Station and Willow Station, some segments of the Blue Line can only operate at 30 to 40 minutes headways during single tracking. To ease the impact of single tracking on Blue Line operations, we are adding four interlockings to increase the operational flexibility of the system. Once this work is complete, patrons will see no difference in Blue Line operations during single tracking, whatever the cause.

Blue and Expo Line Artwork Renovation

In addition to caring for our transportation assets, Metro is also seeking to renew our prior investments in public art on our system. One example of these efforts is the Blue and Expo Line Artwork Renovation project, which covers final design and construction for the complete renovation of a piece of artwork called Unity, by artist Thomas Eatherton. This unique installation
between 7th/Metro Station and Pico Station is an electronically based work of art that is structurally integrated within the tunnel walls of the Metro Blue Line and Expo Line. When the piece is illuminated, it is clearly visible to passengers traveling through the tunnel.

Measure R

Measure R: Impact to the Region

The Measure R sales tax revenue ordinance approved by voters in 2008 has rapidly become the single largest local funding source for the transit capital building boom currently underway in Los Angeles County. Metro’s management is focused on carefully using this funding to ensure that the transit capital and highway projects outlined in the ordinance become a reality.

The investment in public transit and highway infrastructure made possible through Measure R and other funding partners has benefited the region not just in terms of improved mobility, but also with increased economic activity and job creation. This is no small feat considering the worldwide economic downturn at the time when Measure R was approved.

Metrolink is the sole recipient of funding from the Measure R 3% component, which is eligible for operations, maintenance and expansion of the commuter rail system. These funds have helped finance various safety and system improvements, including the installation of the much needed positive train control system.

Local jurisdictions in the county receive funding through the Local Return subfund, which is allocated based on population. As specified in the Measure R ordinance, these funds must be spent on transportation projects and infrastructure improvements such as major street resurfacing and rehabilitation, pothole repair, left turn signals, bikeways, pedestrian improvements, signal synchronization and transit. In addition, the Bus Operations subfund is allocated to Metro and other transit providers in the region based on the Formula Allocation Procedure in order to fund countywide bus service operations, maintenance and expansion.
