LOS ANGELES COUNTY METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY , U.S. Key Facts Agency: Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) Country: United States Agency Profile: • LA Metro is the county's transportation planner, designer, builder and operator • Serves a population of 10.4 million people • Service area covers 1,433 square miles Products Used: EcoSys™ PROGRAM MANAGEMENT AT LOS ANGELES COUNTY METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY (LA METRO) The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) is the third-largest public transportation system in the US. After two decades of extreme traffic congestion in their city, LA County residents voted to approve tax initiative Measure R, which would commit $40 billion for traffic relief and transportation upgrades over the next 30 years. Measure R was the largest investment in Los Angeles County transportation infrastructure since the 1980s and would provide an estimated 210,000 new construction jobs. The program would be responsible for: the expansion of the rail network to include airport connections; the addition of carpool lanes and freeway connectors; funding local street improvements and more. LA Metro was scaled for delivery of only one to two major projects at a time. However, the delivery strategy for Measure R assumed that four to five major projects would be executed concurrently. Add to this the increased expectation for quicker project deliverability and it was clear the agency needed a system that would help successfully manage a program of this size. LA Metro decided to implement an enterprise-wide, web-based program management information system, inclusive of capital planning and staffing analysis. It used EcoSys™ Enterprise Project Performance software as the program's central hub and created an integration, reporting, and analysis platform to address the demand for greater cost accountability and reporting.
