Document Description
The Project would extend the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) E Line, a light rail transit line, from its current terminus at the Atlantic Station in the unincorporated community of East Los Angeles to the city of Whittier. It would extend the Metro E Line approximately 4.2 to 9.0 miles, depending on the Build Alternative. The Build Alternatives are: Alternative 1 Washington (Alternative 1) and Alternative 3 Atlantic to Greenwood IOS (Alternative 3 or Locally Preferred Alternative). Each Build Alternative meets the Project Objectives to varying extents by creating benefits, both to the region and to local communities. By extending the existing Metro E Line into eastern Los Angeles County, the Project will enhance access and mobility and provide connectivity to other destinations along Metro’s regional system. Further, the Project will reduce travel times and the need for transfers within the system by providing a one-seat ride via the Regional Connector. By serving concentrated areas of employment, activity centers and residential communities, the Project will support transit-oriented community goals and address the mobility needs of transit-dependent populations. The Project will provide new and faster transit options which will help lead to equitable development and in-fill growth opportunities throughout eastern Los Angeles County.
