Posted on in News Archive

USA: Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is planning a new transit station that will connect the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to the regional rail system and wants public feedback on proposals being discussed at an upcoming scoping meeting set for Monday 23 February.

The Airport Metro Connector (AMC) Transit Station planned near Aviation Boulevard and 96th Street will provide the connection between the regional rail system to a future Automated People Mover (APM) to be planned, built and operated by Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA).

Metro's AMC transit station is envisioned to include a light rail station served by the Metro Green and Crenshaw/LAX lines, a bus plaza for Metro and municipal buses, pedestrian and bicycle amenities and an enclosed transit center/terminal building that connects Metro's transit station with LAWA's APM station.

The AMC transit station will serve as a new transit "Gateway" to LAX for transit riders. Metro is seeking public input on the scope of the project and environmental impacts to be evaluated.

The Airport Metro Connector Scoping Meeting will take place on Monday, February 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Flight Path Learning Center, 6661 West Imperial Highway, Los Angeles.

The meeting will be broadcast live online. The broadcast will be accessible by visiting metro.net/laxconnector or ustream.tv/channel/airport-metro-connector.
