Station name pylon outside the Civic Center Metro Rail station on the Metro Red and Purple lines. Each Metro Rail station has a similar pylon marking its entrance.
Metro's El Monte Station is unique among transit facilities for its circular bilevel design. The El Monte Station is an integral part of the El Monte Busway, one of the most successful bus rapid transit projects in North America.
One of Metro's many bus stop signs; this one is on Fair Oaks Avenue in the city of Pasadena and is shared with Foothill Transit.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, branded as Metro but also known as LACMTA or MTA, is the public transit operator and regional transportation planning agency for much of Los Angeles County. Metro is also the source of funding for a number of municipal bus operators as well as a good number of other transportation projects, such as bikeways, freeways, and Metrolink commuter rail service in the greater Los Angeles area.

History

Metro was formed on April 1st, 1993 as a result of the merger between the Southern California Rapid Transit District (RTD), the previous operator of bus and rail service in Los Angeles County, and the Los Angeles County Transportation Committee (LACTC), the former transportation planning sector of the county government. Metro inherited all of the bus service formerly operated by the RTD as well as the fledgling Metro Rail network: the entire Metro Blue Line from Los Angeles to Long Beach, as well as the initial operating segment of the Metro Red Line subway that had only been open for several months.

The year 1995 saw the opening of the Metro Green Line, a grade-separated light rail line along the newly-completed Century Freeway (I-105.) The Metro Red Line was extended to Wilshire-Western in 1996, with a branch opening to Hollywood-Vine in 1999 and extended to North Hollywood in 2000. Groundbreaking on a light rail line to Pasadena (initially termed the Pasadena Blue Line) occurred in the late 1990s, but construction was suspended in 1998 due to cost overruns. The line would eventually open under the name of the Metro Gold Line in 2003. The Gold Line was later extended to East Los Angeles in 2009.

In 2000, Metro launched its Metro Rapid bus rapid transit network, intended to replace former limited-stop versions of local routes. With initially two lines (720-Wilshire Blvd and 750-Ventura Blvd), the Metro Rapid network has since expanded to 25 routes with the most recent added in June 2008. Metro also opened its first Metro Liner route in 2005: the Metro Orange Line dedicated busway between North Hollywood and Warner Center. The Metro Silver Line, the second Metro Liner bus route, opened in 2009 connecting the Artesia Transit Center with El Monte Bus Station via the Harbor Transitway and El Monte Busway, operating on surface streets through downtown Los Angeles.

The Metro Expo Line light-rail corridor connecting downtown Los Angeles to Culver City was opened in 2012, later extended to Santa Monica four years later in 2016.

Currently, Metro is undertaking construction on the Crenshaw-LAX light-rail corridor connecting the Green Line to the Metro Expo Line, which is expected to be open in 2020. Additionally, Metro is also constructing several more lines and extensions: a westward extension of the Metro Purple Line subway to Santa Monica; an eastward extension of the Metro Gold Line past Sierra Madre Villa toward the San Gabriel Valley; and construction of a "Downtown Regional Connector" intended to link 7th Street/Metro Center station with Union Station via the Metro Blue and Expo lines.

Description of services

Metro operates the third-largest public transportation system in the United States, after those of New York City and Chicago. Metro's services are listed below:

  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Local livery-b.png is the standard local bus service provided by Metro and its contractors. Metro Local buses are painted in an orange and silver livery that Metro has dubbed "California Poppy". Older vehicles featured the old Metro Bus yellow and white scheme. There are currently over eighteen thousand bus stops on 189 Metro Local lines.
  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Rapid livery-b.png bus lines operate limited-stop service (with routes numbered in the 700 series) along major Metro Local routes. Metro Rapid buses feature a striking "Rapid Red" and silver livery, and they are equipped with transponders to give the buses signal priority at major intersections.
  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Express livery-b.png service offers premium service (with routes numbered in the 400 and 500 series) along the vast freeway network of the Los Angeles region, mostly utilizing the El Monte Busway or Harbor Transitway along the I-10 and I-110 Freeways respectively. Buses operating on two of these lines were previously painted in a "Business Blue" and silver paint scheme.
  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Liner livery-b.png is composed of two bus rapid transit lines: the Metro Orange Line and the Metro Silver Line. Theses lines are included in the Metro Rail System Map. The Orange Line is intended to emulate the Metro Rail system in bus format, Metro Orange Line buses are painted in special two-tone silver "Metro Liner" livery, stop at elaborate bus stops on a dedicated busway, and feature proof-of-payment fare systems such as those currently on Metro Rail. The Metro Silver Line operates using 45 Foot buses in a special dark Gray/Silver livery created exclusively for the route. The Proof of Payment system has yet to be established on the Silver Line. Until such a time where it is, fares will be collected onboard with fareboxes.
  • Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Metro Rail livery-b.png is a system that consists of three at-grade light rail lines (the Metro Blue, Expo, and Gold lines), one grade-separated light rail line (the Metro Green Line) and two heavy rail subway lines (the Metro Red and Purple lines.)
