REGULAR BOARD MEETING

DECEMBER 3, 2015

 

Preamble

Motion by:

 

Ridley-Thomas, Garcetti, Butts and DuBois

 

December 3, 2015

 

Relating to Item 17, File ID 2015-1608

Prioritizing Mobility through the Long Range Transportation Plan Performance Metrics Framework

 

The next step in developing an updated Long Range Transportation Plan (Plan) will be an analysis of all the major highway and transit projects that have been identified by sub-regional stakeholders following a comprehensive planning process.

 

The proposed Performance Metrics provide a framework for evaluating these major projects, and incorporates a diverse range of criteria, including mobility, economy, accessibility, safety and sustainability. All of these criteria are critical to consider when designing a balanced transportation system.

 

However, Metro’s primary mission must be to improve commute times, increase public transit options, and enhance the connectivity of our entire transit system. Therefore, the most significant criteria in assessing future regional transportation investments throughout Los Angeles County should be mobility.
