Title
PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED (3-0) adopting the locally developed 2016-2019 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan for Los Angeles County (see Attachment A for Executive Summary) to comply with the requirements of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21).

ISSUE

Metro is the Designated Recipient of Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 funds in urbanized areas of Los Angeles County (about $6.9 million per year) and is responsible for the planning, programming, distribution, and management of these funds.

It will update and replace the 2008 Coordinated Plan that was approved by the Board as required by MAP-21.
