During this week’s city council meeting several options were presented for the city to consider for the proposed Inglewood Transit Connector that would provide residents and visitors with a world-class transit connection to-and-from the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line directly to the City’s major activity centers including Downtown Inglewood, The Forum, the Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park (LA Rams and LA Chargers), and the proposed Inglewood Basketball and Entertainment Center (Los Angeles Clippers).
The new elevated transit service would provide a convenient, reliable and efficient transportation option for the public to enjoy when traveling to the City, and complete the first/last mile connection from the Regional Metro Rail system to the City’s major activity centers. Research and analysis of various alignment alternatives are currently underway.
The City is updating its Mobility Plan to establish the current vision, goals and objectives required to best prepare itself for the City’s emerging and future mobility demands. As part of this update effort, the Mobility Plan will identify both near-term and long-term transportation improvements to help move people across multimodal transportation environment. These improvements may include: Enhanced pedestrian and bike infrastructure; intelligent transportation system improvements’ enhanced parking strategies; rideshare and traffic demand management strategies; physical improvements; and, other alternative forms of transportation.
