Achieving long-term transportation
outcomes is an important goal of the Los Angeles Department
of Transportation. LADOT employees are committed to creating
a vibrant Los Angeles through transit improvement projects
that enhance the City’s mobility.
The Department is proud to inform the public
of the status of projects that enhance transit operations
in the City. Here is a pdf
map of the major mass transit projects in LA. This includes existing lines,
lines under construction, lines in design, lines under study: most of which are projects LADOT is working on.
Rail transit lines
• Metro rail line construction: LADOT
has partnered with Metro
on the agency’s drive to add the Exposition
Light Rail line to Los Angeles County’s transportation
Transit bus operations
• Downtown DASH re-route: LADOT transit
officials authorized a re-routing of DASH
C and weekend route
DD in response to changing downtown transportation needs.
The routes will now service downtown residents with stops
near the recently opened Ralphs FreshFare supermarket.
• New shuttle
to Griffith Park Observatory: LADOT is now offering
Shuttle, a weekend shuttle service that runs to Griffith
Park and the Griffith Observatory from the Vermont/Sunset
Metro Red Line station. The line operates Saturdays and Sundays,
running every 35 minutes between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Passengers
on the Observatory Shuttle route will ride in red LADOT trolley
buses for a $0.25 fare.

Construction of a new sidewalk and improvements to
the parking lot will begin in mid-2008.
