The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority has been awarded $1.24 billion in American Rescue Plan Act funds to help pay for expenses incurred by the agency during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
“L.A. Metro is deeply appreciative to U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein and Alex Padilla, our Los Angeles County Congressional Delegation, working alongside President Biden and U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, for clearing the way for our agency to be awarded $1.24 billion in American Rescue Plan Act funds,” said Metro Board Chair and Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, 1st District.
Solis said Metro will use the America Rescue Plan Act funds to benefit riders, including seniors, persons with disabilities, and low-income and transit-dependent individuals. The grant will support bus and rail operations and maintenance, critical activities that will ensure the transit system operates safely, efficiently, reliably and sustainably, she added.
To keep transit capital projects on track, the American Rescue Plan Act also included $1.6 billion for the Capital Investment Grant Program,. The CIG Program in the American Rescue Plan Act included over $275 million for Metro transit capital projects, including $218.5 million for the Purple Line Extension project and $59 million for the Regional Connector Transit Project.
