Metro’s draft Moving Beyond Sustainability Plan now available for public comment

Metro is dedicated to the sustainability of L.A. County’s people, environment, and economy. Our definition of sustainability is holistic — accounting for environmental, social and economic considerations in our decision making and operations, while also prioritizing community resilience and equity. The Moving Beyond Sustainability (MBS) Plan is the manifestation of this commitment and builds on a decade of sustainability policies, plans, initiatives and reporting by Metro leadership and staff.

A draft version of the MBS Plan is now available for public comment. The purpose of the plan is to bring together all of Metro’s environmental programs and sustainability policies into one comprehensive document. It is a critical component in realizing the agency’s vision of being a world class transportation agency and contributing to the important work of building a vibrant, strong and innovative region.

Moving beyond sustainability means looking at the connections between the environment, the economy, and quality of life. The Plan meets this challenge by outlining Metro’s commitments through 2030 for saving energy and water, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, creating more resilient and connected neighborhoods and offering new economic opportunities. Most importantly, this is a plan for the continual improvement of Metro as your choice for transportation and discovering our diverse region.

We need your help to make this vision a reality. Read the draft Plan and comment on its content at If you have questions about the Plan or the input form, contact The comment period is open now through April 24, 2020. Please take a moment and let us know what you think!
