The Principles Guiding A Proposed New Sales Tax Measure

MLA_WeCanWin2016_Objectives.jpg

Move LA's Leadership Board and coalition partners are meeting with new LA Metro CEO Phil Washington Tuesday to talk about the projects that we'd like to see funded in a new sales tax measure to achieve the objectives listed above.

We are keenly interested in:

  • Completing the Metro Rail Transit Strategic Plan
  • Ensuring that there is a robust operating budget that makes it possible to keep fares low
  • Creating of network of Grand Boulevards that could include transit upgrades to bus rapid transit*
  • Expand funding for active transportation and first-last-mile connections to stations
  • Modernize the Metrolink commuter rail system
  • Invest in clean goods movement with zero- + near-zero-emission vehicles
  • Make neighborhoods better places in which to live without displacing current residents or local businesses

*Bus rapid transit (BRT) is high-quality, high-capacity bus service, with buses that often travel in exclusive lanes from station to station (not bus stop to bus stop), thereby avoiding traffic and providing a more comfortable ride. The Orange Line (from North Hollywood to Chatsworth) is “true BRT” in that it travels in its own right of way; the Silver Line (from El Monte to Gardena) travels in its own right of way some of the time.
