    Vision 2028 Strategic Plan

    LA Metro’s Office of Extraordinary Innovation led an effort to develop an ambitious 10-year strategic plan, Metro Vision 2028. Across an agency of over 10,000 employees serving over 10 million residents, this Plan aligns all of Metro’s services, programs, and projects toward a unified vision in order to deliver a world-class transportation system that improves the quality of life for those who live, work and play within LA County. The objective of the Plan was to establish the mission, vision, performance outcomes, and goals for Metro and put into motion specific initiatives and actions towards which Metro and its partners will strive in pursuit of a better transportation future. Metro’s visionary outcomes aim to double the percent usage of transportation modes other than solo driving, including taking transit, walking, biking, sharing rides, and carpooling. The Plan was adopted by the Metro Board of Directors, the agency’s governing body, on June 28, 2018.
