It’s a long way off, but the 2028 Olympic Games is looming large for Metro officials.
They’ve designed a vision of what the LA Metro public transit system would look like in 2028, when the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games are set to take place in Los Angeles, pending a vote in September by the International Olympics Committee.
The improvements to the subway and light rail network stem from Measure R and Measure M, two transportation ballot measures approved by L.A. County voters in 2008 and 2016, according to Metro.
With major Olympic events grouped in a few areas around the region, Metro’s rapid bus and rail lines would be close to “sports parks,” allowing for better access from downtown Los Angeles, the Sepulveda Basin in the San Fernando Valley and Long Beach. Metro says other venues will be near the revamped transit network (Santa Monica Beach, the Rose Bowl, the new football stadium in Inglewood, StubHub Center, among others), and in some cases, travelers will be served by shuttle buses to get from one place to another.
