Type: Better Transit
Forecasted Opening: N/A
Metro’s plan includes better transit for seniors, persons with disabilities, low-income individuals and veterans. We have finished updating our Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan) for LA County, which evaluates future needs and service gaps, to address federal requirements for Federal Transit Administration’s Section 5310 funding process.
The final updated 2021-2024 Coordinated Plan for Los Angeles County was approved by the Metro Board of Directors in June 2021. In updating this plan, Metro gathered input from stakeholders, agencies, and transportation service providers through a series of focus groups, surveys, and meetings. Per federal requirements, all projects funded through the Section 5310 program, must derive from a Coordinated Plan. Therefore, the plan was updated and will be a key resource for evaluating Section 5310 project applications and prioritizing future funding awards.
