Traffic congestion on local streets steals valuable time and creates safety issues for all street users, particularly those taking public transit to get to and from home, work, school, businesses, and other key locations.
Moving More People Using Existing Infrastructure
Metro has a plan to make it easier to get around LA. Bus service is the backbone of the public transit system, which is why the NextGen Bus Plan reimagined the bus system to focus on providing fast, frequent, reliable, and accessible service. A key element in implementing this plan is the use of bus priority lanes. These lanes would improve bus speeds by 15% or more, increasing service frequency and reliability, as well as enhancing mobility by moving more people within existing infrastructure.
Improving Mobility in LA
The Florence Av Bus Priority Lanes Project is an important step toward building a safer and faster multi-modal transit network in Los Angeles. Located along a 5.4-mile segment of Florence Av, between West Bl and the Florence A Line (Blue) Station, the project would add bus priority lanes in both directions for Metro Line 111 during weekday peak hours from 7–10am and 3–7pm.
