Metro Final Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan is approved

Metro finalized its 2021-2024 Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan (plan) for L.A. County. The plan addresses regional transportation needs of target populations including seniors, persons with disabilities, low-income individuals and veterans. Read and download the plan here — it is also embedded above.

The plan was approved by the Metro’s Board of Directors at their June 24 meeting. The plan covers the following areas:

  • Current and future mobility needs of target populations.
  • Goals and strategies to address gaps in transportation services.
  • Prioritized projects and programs to improve mobility for target population groups.

The plan also includes comments and questions raised by the public following the release of the draft plan on March 19, 2021 and input from a virtual community meeting held on April 7, 2021.

In addition to the community meeting,  three focus group meetings were held November 2020 and an extensive survey was conducted to understand how municipalities and transit service providers were operating during COVID-19 restrictions. The survey also asked about future funding needs and concerns.

The plan fulfills a requirement for federal funding through the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA’s) Section 5310 program.

  1. IF MTA was really cared about serving its elderly and disabled riders, it would not have canceled stops on the 260 Line that some of us have relied upon for decades. MTA’s response to my objections was basically that they cancelled the stops because they could. The most important thing to know about the Human Services Transportation Plan is that it “fulfills a requirement for federal funding”.
