Measure M Lessons Learned

LA County’s Measure M Lessons Learned

This report documents the story of Measure M – LA County’s ambitious transportation sales tax initiative – and Metro’s bottom-up approach that took into account the diverse needs of the county’s 10.1 million residents.

The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is Metro’s roadmap to improve mobility, provide more transportation options, stimulate our local economy, and create jobs. The vision of this program is to enhance our public transit program by investing in our bus system while expanding our rail system. The plan is also delivering highway improvements such as new carpool lanes and projects that are easing freeway bottlenecks for both auto and truck traffic. And, the plan invests in many other programs, including transit operations, highway maintenance, local street improvements, bicycle and pedestrian connections, and transit services for the disabled.
Thanks to revenues from Proposition A, Proposition C, and Measure R along with local, state and federal funds, Metro has extended the Gold Line to run from East LA to Azusa; opened the Silver Line from El Monte to Harbor Gateway Transit Center; opened the Expo Line Extension to Santa Monica; extended the Orange Line to Chatsworth; added ExpressLanes on both the 10 and 110 freeways; started construction on the Crenshaw/LAX, Regional Connector and Purple Line Extension rail projects and expanded bike and pedestrian programs throughout the county. But the region has more unmet critical transportation needs than there is money to meet them.
