Crafting a Strategic Plan: Metro Vision 2028
Metro Vision 2028 is our agency’s big picture plan to improve mobility in Los Angeles County and explains what the public can expect from Metro over the next ten years. This is a bold and ambitious plan that intends to marshal the creativity, resources, and political will to shape our mobility future and unleash Los Angeles County’s unparalleled economic and social promise. Vision 2028 is the result of more than 17-months of research, discussion, and outreach by Metro’s Office of Extraordinary Innovation. The draft Vision 2028 Plan will be formally released to the public on April 27, 2018, followed by a four-week public comment period. The Metro Board of Directors will consider adopting the Plan at their meeting on June 28.
What is the purpose of Metro Vision 2028?
Let’s first summarize the critical issue facing LA County. We all know it as traffic, but traffic congestion is an indicator of broader mobility problems. Mobility is directly related to our region’s future and its economic and social promise. Better mobility means safe and convenient access to the basic needs in your life, such as more job opportunities, housing, education, and health services. Vision 2028 seeks to provide great mobility to everyone, whether they walk, bike, take transit, or drive. The plan builds on some key initiatives already underway now at Metro — and includes strategic actions that go well beyond the status quo. Vision 2028 sets Metro’s strategic direction and serves as the foundation for all other Metro plans, programs, and services. For example, the already in progress Long Range Transportation Plan and the NextGen Bus Study will take a deeper and more detailed focus on how we will accomplish goals in Vision 2028.
