Nearly 90% of the proposed venues in Los Angeles County for the 2028 Games are within Equity Focused Communities (EFCs). The lessons learned offer best practices to enhance mobility during the 2028 Games to keep the region moving and minimize the disruption of quality of life for all Angelenos, especially EFC populations. The lessons learned from this presentation provide insight into how to leverage infrastructure for the Games to create legacy benefits, such as enhanced mobility, accessibility, connectivity, workforce development, and economic opportunity.

Like in previous major events, parking restrictions and road closures at venues may impact high ridership lines during the 2028 Games. Staff is working on preparing demand data to understand the potential impacts of the Games. When data becomes available, Metro can identify and mitigate service impacts to riders along high-ridership lines during the Games. The lessons learned incorporate best practices for reducing the impact on disadvantaged communities and overcoming these mobility challenges, including accessibility parking, transit detours, and implementation of the Games Route Network.
