Completed Plans

Blue Line First/Last Mile Plan

This plan identifies pedestrian and bicycle improvements within the walking (1/2 mile) and biking (3 mile) distances of each station on the Blue Line, 22 stations in total. This is the first comprehensive first/last mile plan by Metro for an entire rail line and was completed in 2018 through a community-based process. The Blue Line First/Last Mile Plan is now available.

Inglewood First/Last Mile Plan

This plan identifies pedestrian and bicycle improvements within the walking (1/2 mile) and biking (3 mile) distances of three stations on the Crenshaw/LAX Line (Fairview Heights, Downtown Inglewood, Westchester/Veterans), and one station on the Green Line (Crenshaw). This is the first first/last mile project with committed implementation funding from the City of Inglewood.

Gold Line Foothill Extension 2B

The plan includes first/last mile station area plans for five stations on the Gold Line Extension Phase 2B (Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont). The development of the station plans included close coordination with the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority and coordination with the five cities around the station areas.

Aviation / 96th St Station (Airport Metro Connector) First/Last Mile Plan

A new major transit hub will connect the LAX/Crenshaw and Green Metro Rail lines and a number of bus routes with the LAX Automated People Mover. The first/last mile plan will address first/last mile connections in the surrounding station area, located near the border of Los Angeles and Inglewood.

Other Plans

Transit to Parks Strategic Plan

The Transit to Parks Strategic Plan recommends cost-effective investments for connecting disadvantaged and park-poor communities to open space and parks using transit. The planning process engaged potential partners and stakeholders and analyzed park access needs with a focus on disadvantaged communities, providing data to guide decision-making on future projects and investments. The Plan was adopted by the Metro Board of Directors on June 27, 2019.

Analysis and Selection of VMT Mitigation Measures Pursuant to SB 743

Senate Bill 743 (SB 743) was signed in 2013, and required the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR) to identify new metrics for identifying and mitigating transportation impacts under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). As a result, OPR identified Vehicle miles Traveled (VMT) per capita and VMT per employee as the new metrics for transportation analysis.
This report summarizes the analysis of potential transportation impacts, under new guidelines, to previously certified Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs) where LA Metro is the Lead Agency or, in the case of highway projects, may have a role in mitigation measures.
