(Invitation: To Register, click on Order Now or Attend Event Button above): Seize this first time opportunity to hear Jenny Cristales-CevallosMetro Eastside Gold Line Phase 2 Project Manager [Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority] talk about changes and developments in Eastside Gold Line in Los Angeles County. Ms. Cristales-Cevallos will reveal her thoughts, vision, Speaker-Jenny Cristales-Cevallos Photoguidance and upcoming plans to create a modern rail network. Following the presentation, Ms. Cristales-Cevallos will answer audience questions about Southern California's transformative transportation plan.

Join The Transit Coalition to learn about the future of Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project, as Metro is preparing a Supplemental / Recirculated Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) for the Eastside Gold Line that proposes to extend the route further east from its current terminus at Pomona Blvd and Atlantic Blvd in East Los Angeles to South El Monte via State Route 60 (SR-60) and/or Whittier along Washington Blvd.

Four (4) Alternatives are being studied as part of the Supplemental / Recirculated EIS/EIR: No Build, SR-60, Washington Blvd. and a Combination of both Options. The SR-60, Washington Blvd. and Combined Alternatives will also explore opportunities for first/last mile improvements and transit-oriented communities.

The Los Angeles County Traffic Improvement Plan (The Plan), presented to voters as Ballot Measure M, in November 2016, allocated $6 billion to the Eastside Transit Corridor Phase 2 Project. Funding for this project, per The Plan’s funding schedule, has been programmed in two cycles. Cycle 1 allocates $3 billion in 2029 and Cycle 2 allocates $3 billion in 2053. The Project is also identified in Metro’s Reimagining LA County Plan (also known as the 28 by 2028 Initiative) as a high priority project. Per the Plan/Initiative, if funding can be secured prior to the programmed 2029 funding cycle, one alternative (yet-to-be determined) could begin construction earlier (in anticipation of the 2028 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games).

If you are in the transit, engineering, architectural or construction industry, don’t get left at the station, you need to attend to find out about the progress being made right now and how to get involved. If you are a transit advocate, come learn about the work going on now to make this major transformative project a reality.

The Transit Coalition

Mission Statement

The Transit Coalition is a broad based group of concerned citizens mobilized to passionately demonstrate community support for the economic development and continuing operation of improved transportation.

Objectives

The Transit Coalition works to develop a safe, integrated, cost effective and environmentally sound public transportation system for the greater Los Angeles region. The Transit Coalition realizes that government must not only look at the tangible cost of running and building a public transportation network, but also the intangible benefits that such a system provides, such as better health, less pollution, reasonable travel time, ease of use, coordinated schedules with a minimum amount of transferring between routes. Our efforts at education and outreach highlight congestion relief opportunities and mobility alternatives that will allow the area to move forward to reach full potential as a dynamic, culturally advanced and livable world-class region.
