How LA Metro is Revolutionizing Their Transit Network with Microtransit

January 26, 2021

About this webinar

In December 2020, LA Metro launched the Metro Micro on-demand transit service to connect Angelenos with their existing transit network and accommodate short trips throughout LA County. This project is the single largest public on-demand transit service worldwide and has been 3 years in the making. To make this all possible it took LA's innovative approach to procurement, in-depth planning from both teams, and clear operational goals.

In this webinar Shared-Use Mobility Center Founder in Residence, Sharon Feigon will be moderating a discussion between Metro Micro Project Manager, Rani Narula-Woods and RideCo CEO, Prem Gururajan. They'll share details about the project, the challenges that have been overcome, and how the Metro Micro service was set up for success.

Hear directly from the team involved in the project about:

  • What was involved in planning the world's largest on-demand transit solution
  • The benefits of establishing a strong private-public-partnership model
  • How success is defined for microtransit both at LA Metro as well as best practices from our industry experience
