The California Transportation Commission (CTC) in its May meeting has allocated a total of $924 million to improve transport infrastructure throughout the State including $27.8 million to purchase new light rail vehicles for the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (L.A. Metro).
L.A. Metro will use this fund to buy 78 new light rail vehicles with an option to buy an additional 39. For the fiscal Year2022, the Los Angeles transit agency has proposed spending $92 million for light and heavy railcar purchases for replacement and expansion.
Other projects for which funds are allocated by CTC includes $6.5 million to purchase 05 zero-emission battery-electric buses and for the construction of charging infrastructure to create “a zero-emission over-the-road coach commuter route” between the Greater Long Beach area and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Funds amounting to $5 million allocated to complete the environmental documentation for the Vermont Transit Corridor which will result in either a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) or rail transit service between Hollywood Boulevard and 120th Street.
According to Toks Omishakin, Director of Caltrans, the State’s transportation department, “Caltrans is building a brighter future through a transportation network that serves all Californians. This significant investment will help us fortify and enhance our state’s vast network of highways, bridges, transit facilities, bikeways and pedestrian routes”.
