STATEMENT BY METRO CEO ROGER SNOBLE Re: Reaction to Texas Transportation Institute’s Traffic Congestion Report

While the Los Angeles region remains the nation’s most congested, we also rank number one in terms of operational improvements that squeeze more capacity out of our streets and highways and number three in savings as a result of our public transportation.
