Parking Master Plan

Metro is conducting a comprehensive study of its parking facilities at 48 transit stations across its LA County service area to develop a Supportive Transit Parking Program (STPP) Master Plan. This plan will outline a vision for proactively managing Metro parking facilities. The plan will provide a roadmap for Metro’s future parking policies, operations, enforcement, maintenance and innovative technologies to support this vision. The study is expected to run for one year, with the final Plan going to the Metro Board for adoption in Fall 2016.

Metro continues to research potential improvements. Tell us about your experience by taking the survey.
