Title
AUTHORIZE the Chief Executive Officer to negotiate and execute a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Los Angeles Department of Public Works-Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL) to execute the design and construction of bus stop security lighting under the Metro Enhanced Bus Stop Lighting project totaling $750,000.

Issue
ISSUE

There are many bus stops within the LA Metro system that can benefit from enhanced lighting. An assessment by LA Metro Service Planning staff identified a number of these bus stops needing additional lighting for enhanced safety. This project will provide a comfortable visibility to encourage bus ridership.
Execution of this project will be expedited through BSL as these lights will be installed on City of Los Angeles public right-of-way but adjacent to an existing LA Metro bus stop. BSL will maintain the bus stop lighting and renewable sources of energy, if any.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) awarded to Metro Grant $600,000 in federal funds for the procurement and installation of energy efficient lighting at Metro bus stops.

The Board authorization of the staff recommendation will allow a "pass through' to BSL of up to $600,000 of Federal Funds and up to $150,000 of Metro Local match funds for the design, procurement, and installation of bus stop security lighting. The total cost for the Project is estimated to be $750,000. Metro Service Planning prioritized the bus stops where this project can be implemented and be funded through this project. These locations were selected based on staff's assessment for their need of a security enhancement at these locations (Attachment A).
