The C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance project is studying light rail transit options between the existing Redondo Beach Station and the under-construction Torrance Transit Center. Trains from both the Metro C Line (Green) and the future Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project may run on this new extension.
A previous study — called a Supplemental Alternatives Analysis (SAA) — honed in on two possible routes, shown on the map above.
As part of the project, Metro is beginning to work on a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance Project pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The scoping period — when the public can tell Metro what issues it would like studied — begins Jan. 29 and runs through March 29, 2021.
Metro will be hosting virtual public scoping meetings to accept both written and oral comments on the scope of the Draft EIR:

This project is an extension of light rail along a four-mile segment of the Harbor Subdivision Corridor — an old freight rail corridor owned by Metro. This extension will provide a transit alternative to crowded 405 freeway and better connect southwestern L.A. County to the regional rail network through rail connections to the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, the A (Blue) Line, E (Expo) Line and J (Silver) Line.
The C Line (Green) Extension to Torrance project aims to:
- Improve mobility in the South Bay by introducing frequent, reliable transit service to meet growing transportation needs.
- Provide more direct connections from the South Bay to regional destinations.
- Provide an alternative mode of transportation for commuters currently using congested arterials and I-405 in the project study area.
- Improve transit accessibility for South bay community residents.
- Reduce air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions by making transit a more viable transportation choice.
Written and oral comments will be accepted at the virtual public scoping meetings or they may be sent to Dolores Roybal Saltarelli, Project Manager, Metro, One Gateway Plaza, Mail Stop: 99-22-4, Los Angeles, CA 90012, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
