Metro’s First Last Mile Strategic Plan – out for Public Comment

From First Last Mile Strategic Plan page 11

In November 2013, the Metro Sustainability team released the draft First Last Mile Strategic Plan for public comment and input. One of the key goals of this plan is to better coordinate infrastructure investments in station areas to increase ridership.  Addressing walking and bicycling access to transit is a key part of increasing ridership and improving the user experience, and supporting our regional transportation system:

“91% Walk, Bike, roll and Takes Buses to Metro Rail/BRT (Metro 2011 On-Board survey).  The fact that the vast majority of transit users are already walking or rolling themselves to stations or to complete multi-modal connections demands a careful consideration of the inherent relationship between active transportation and the regional transportation system.” (page 8)

We encourage our partners to take a look at this plan and provide input by February 15, 2014 to Steven Mateer (MateerS@metro.net).  It is exciting to see Metro develop more and more policies and programs to support increased multi-modal investments in Los Angeles County, we encourage our partners to review their ideas and provide input on this important work by 2/15/14.

    I’d like to see the original data for that 2011 survey… Metro has 2012 and 2013 online, but the 2011 one doesn’t show arrival mode anywhere. Do you have a link or a source document for the 91%/9% split in 2011?
