In 1998, Metro initiated the Countywide Bus Signal Priority Pilot Project as part of an effort to design, develop, implement, and evaluate a multi-jurisdictional bus signal priority system as well as develop countywide signal priority guidelines for Los Angeles County. The CSP Pilot Project was a collaborative effort bringing together multiple jurisdictions and transit operators that resulted in the development of a wireless signal priority standard for Los Angeles County.

This was a follow-up to the previous successful demonstration pilot and the first phase of an expansion effort to implement signal priority on seven Metro Rapid corridors traversing through 24 jurisdictions.
