L.A. Metro To Host Three Traffic Reduction Study Meetings This Month
By City News Service
Published February 4, 2021

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority will hold three virtual public meetings this month to present the public with ideas for a potential pilot program to study reducing traffic, officials said today.

The two-year study will try to determine if strategies like congestion pricing and transportation options could make it easier for people to get around the area, Metro stated.

A recommended pilot will be brought to the Metro board in partnership with one or more cities for their consideration.

Metro officials say long-term regional growth has outpaced efforts to ease traffic, and while traffic was reduced during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is likely to return and get worse as the economy gets back on track.

The Traffic Reduction Study is part of Metro’s Vision 2028 Plan, an initiative to make it easier to travel around Los Angeles and plan for a future without gridlock.

During the public meetings, Metro will share input it has received so far and discuss how that input will inform the study. The virtual public meetings will be held on:

— Wednesday, Feb. 10 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (register at https://bit.ly/3aub6aW);

— Tuesday, Feb. 16 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (register at https://bit.ly/3oLRJyU); and

— Saturday, Feb. 27 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (register at https://bit.ly/2MPegxF).

The meetings will be held in English, but live translations in Spanish will be available. ADA and Title VI accommodations are available by request and must be submitted at least three work days in advance by calling 213-393- 3905 or California Relay Services at 711.
