Your Input is Needed! Inform Metro’s Active Transportation Network

As part of Metro’s Active Transportation Strategic Plan (ATSP) Update, we want to hear about your experiences walking, biking and rolling around LA County by June 10th.

Metro is seeking input for the Update’s proposed Active Transportation Network, a regional system of bikeway corridors, pedestrian zones, and first/last mile connectivity to public transit. This network will guide Metro’s planning for future active transportation improvements. Below are some ways you can help inform the proposed network:

Place comments in our Mapping Tool: Please help us understand where biking, walking, and rolling are most important to you and how your experience could be improved. Use the Countywide Mapping Tool to place a pin at your intended location and leave us a comment.

Complete our Active Transportation Questionnaire : You can also complete our ATSP Questionnaire to help us better understand how you incorporate active transportation into your daily trips and note what conditions might make you more likely to walk or bike in your neighborhood.

The project is seeking input for the Active Transportation Network through June 10, 2022.

New to the ATSP Update?
Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around, which includes advancing active transportation to provide more travel options throughout LA County. First adopted in 2016, the Active Transportation Strategic Plan lays out a vision for regional bikeways and first/last mile connectivity for all who live, work, and play in LA County. Metro initiated the ATSP Update effort to measure progress since the initial plan and renew its goals and objectives.

What Is Active Transportation?
Active transportation refers to human-powered methods of travel, such as walking, biking, and rolling to get from one place to another. The benefits of active transportation include improved health, safety, air quality and economic activity.

 

What Is Being Studied?

  • Recent progress in countywide active transportation and active transportation policies throughout the region
  • A refined countywide active transportation network, including regional bikeway corridors, pedestrian zones, and first/last mile connectivity to public transit
  • Implementation strategies for equitable, safe, and connected active transportation

If you have any questions, contact us at atsp@metro.net or call us at 213.922.4005.

Please email us if you would like to be added to the email distribution list and stay informed of the ATSP Update process.

  1. SUGGESTION: Invest in placing a conductor on board Metro trains, (ex:Red Line that I use), like in New York City where I’m from so commuters can get help if they are sick/victim(s) of a crime or need to report other illegal activities. Having a transit employee visible to the riding public either stationed in one car or moving to different ones definitely makes people feel safer. And it allows that person to contact the police in a timely manner should they need to be deployed to a certain station.

  2. If the MTA insists in investing in Bike lanes do it right and separate them from motor vehicle traffic. Painting a cute little white line only provides bike riders with a false sense of security and in fact subjects riders to another safety hazard, vehicle drivers doors opening into their path. I was a victim of this as a teen over sixty years ago. As a former RTD/MTA Road Supervisor the majority of accidents I investigated were driver doors opening into the side of buses. …………………..The MTA talks about improving bus service. This however does not include increasing bus service with more buses but instead reallocating existing resources. Light Rail is being built not to serve the majority of riders but to fullfill various politians political agendas.

    • SUGGESTION: It would be great to schedule buses starting a route at train stations (like the Arcadia Gold Line Station) 5 minutes after the train arrives specially since buses run every hour. It may seem silly but most nights I get off the Gold Line at Arcadia and see the 287 bus leaving in from of my eyes and I have to wait 1 hour for the next one just to three miles away.
