Metro is committed to creating a sustainable region and future for the more than 9.6 million people who live and work in Los Angeles County.
Our commitment towards a better environment begins with public transit. But we go well beyond buses and trains, with local bike and pedestrian improvements, and innovative solutions in alternative fuels, emissions controls, countywide planning, and more.
Metro will be the leader in maximizing sustainability efforts and its benefits to LA County’s people, finances and environment.
Metro will provide leadership in sustainability within the LA County region without comprising our core mission of moving people efficiently and effectively.
The agency has focused its sustainability efforts in two primary areas:
- Countywide Planning : Plans and implements a countywide transportation system that increases mobility, fosters walkable and livable communities, and minimizes greenhouse gas and environmental impacts.
- Environmental Compliance and Services : Minimizes environmental impacts from the design, construction, operation and maintenance of Metro’s facilities and operations.
