First/last mile planning for the City of Inglewood is underway for the existing Green Line Crenshaw Station and future Crenshaw/LAX Line stations including: Fairview Heights, Downtown Inglewood, Westchester/Veterans, and Aviation/96th Street. Metro, the City of Inglewood staff and community members conducted community walk audits around these stations — walk audits are an important first step in helping Metro collect more data on existing pedestrian and bicycle conditions and connections to transit stations.
The data collected from the walk audits will help inform neighborhood planning. But we need more input to ensure safe, accessible, and pleasant trips to and from transit throughout the City of Inglewood! So please come out and give your feedback at these upcoming community workshops:

Do “first-last mile connections” encompass bus service changes and improvements in this context?
I think the current workshops are focusing more on pedestrian/bike improvements, but they will take in to account bus service and connections, and would welcome feedback on that as well.
