This policy is intended to help advance state, regional and local efforts to create a more “complete” and integrated transportation network for all modes of travel in LA County.The Workshop is designed for:  Planners, engineers, traffic safety professionals, public health and injury prevention professionals, advocates, transit riders, transit operators, school districts, non-profit organizations, and policy makers.

Hosted by Metro, the workshop will:

  • Gather input to inform the development of Metro’s Complete Streets Policy
  • Explore how Metro can help facilitate improved coordination and network integration across agencies, jurisdictions, and modes
  • Inform participants about federal policies and state laws related to Complete Streets
  • Discuss ways in which Complete Streets policies are being implemented in LA County, including accommodation of transit operations in a Complete Streets context
