(Invitation: To Register, click on Order Now or Attend Event Button above): Speaker-Cory ZelmerSeize this opportunity to hear Cory Zelmer, Metro Deputy Executive Officer [LACMTA] talk about unknowns with the Metro planning development initiative to improve travel along the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project between the San Fernando Valley, the Westside and Los Angeles International Airport. Mr. Zelmer talks about vision and the plans to create a modern rail line from the SF Valley to the Westside.

Mr. Zelmer is a Deputy Executive Officer for Transit Corridor Planning at LA Metro where his team manages the early planning, conceptual design and environmental clearance process for large-scale transit projects. Prior to the start of the Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project, Mr. Zelmer was the Project Manager for the Airport Metro Connector 96th Street Transit Station.

Join The Transit Coalition to learn about the Feasibility Study Metro is conducting to identify and evaluate a range of high-capacity rail transit alternatives between the San Fernando Valley and LAX. You don't want to miss Mr. Zelmer talk about the natural barrier created by the Santa Monica Mountains that means that most people traveling between these areas are funneled primarily onto the I-405 Freeway, already ranked as one of the most traveled urban highways in the nation. 

More than 400,000 people travel through this area every day to commute to work, school, and other destinations along the freeway and beyond.

How will some of the Key Challenges be addressed? What is the status of this project with others in Southern California? What are the challenges and the solutions? Sign up and enjoy this program. Our presenter Mr. Zelmer brings the insights gained from recent experience on this subject and previous projects he has been involved with.

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.
