Los Angeles County’s bus network carries over 70% of Metro’s customers, but hasn’t had a significant update in 25 years. Metro is currently designing an updated modern bus network that is more relevant, reflective of, and attractive to the residents of LA County. As Chair of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board of Directors, Supervisor Sheila Kuehl believes this redesigned network will improve service to current riders, attract a new generation of users and win back past customers. The new bus Service Plan is anticipated for rollout as early as December 2019.

To ensure that all aspects of Metro bus service are on the table for study, Metro are conducting a NextGen Bus Study. As part of this process, public input will be evaluated alongside travel data. Metro will be holding NextGen Bus Study workshops across LA County where they want to hear from the community about your thoughts on how Metro can improve bus routes, days and times of operation, and service frequency. The workshops are being held to ensure that Metro’s updated network integrates with all the ways you travel throughout LA County, to make sure its services get you where you need and want to go. Light refreshments will be available, and everyone who attends the events will receive a free TAP card while supplies last. Additionally, there will also be a raffle to give away several Metro transit passes.

Eight upcoming NextGen Bus Study workshops are being held. Please join Metro to make sure that their new plan fits your lifestyle.
