Study Process

What is the current status?

The Metro NextGen redesign process has transitioned from the Study phase into the Plan phase and is currently in Step 3 (please see graphic below). Metro staff has processed all the robust data and input received to date and has restructured current bus lines and updated the entire bus system. With the draft of the Metro NextGen Bus Plan now developed, these new service concepts will be presented to the Metro Board and the public in early 2020.

Step 1, which focused on elevating public awareness and listening to stakeholder groups input, was completed in Summer 2018. This included listening to past, current and potential riders about their habits, needs, preferences and how they want to get around.

During Step 2, we asked the community to consider tradeoffs when telling us about their transit priorities. We then dove deeper into analyzing technical data that helped the team understand how Angelenos travel throughout LA County (please see the NextGen Data Center to explore this data). All this information helped to inform the service design considerations within the Regional Service Concept .
