The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved a study to evaluate the transit needs of the unincorporated communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, East Whittier and North Whittier, and recommend route or service changes to existing services or recommend new services.
The $102,000 Transit Needs Study will be performed by IBI Group, and will take approximately ten months to complete. The goal of the study is to identify unmet transit needs and recommend improvements to transit services for the residents in these communities. As part of the evaluation, public outreach and planning sessions will be utilized to get feedback from local stakeholders and community groups. The study is funded by the Fourth Supervisorial District’s Proposition A Local Return Transit Program, and is part of the County’s ongoing effort to evaluate the transit needs of its unincorporated communities.
This study is critical to understanding the transit needs of our residents that live in these areas, said Supervisor Don Knabe, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. It will not only identify gaps or deficiencies in the current transit network, but also recommend ways to improve services.
