Moving Los Angeles Into the Future

Over the last 25 years, we have made tremendous progress in creating more transportation options for everyone who lives, works and plays throughout Los Angeles County. There is even more to come with 3 rail lines under construction and set to open in the next four years, and more transit and highway projects moving forward. At the same time, Metro is always thinking about the future. We are currently working to update our Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) that was last adopted in 2009 .  Once approved by the Metro Board of Directors, the LRTP serves as a blueprint for how Metro will spend anticipated revenues in the coming decades to:

  • Operate and maintain our current and planned system;
  • Continue to deliver on our commitments from the 2009 LRTP ; and
  • Identify any new projects, programs, or initiatives.

As we develop the new LRTP, Metro will consider the new revenue source generated by Measure M, the half-cent sales tax ballot measure that was approved by 71.15% of the voters in 2016. Our current schedule anticipates adopting a new LRTP in the next two years.
