Torrance, CA, Launches Express Service to LA

Torrance (CA) Transit recently introduced express bus service between the city and Los Angeles, which it operates through a partnership with Los Angeles Metro and other municipal public transit operators with funding through Metro’s Net Toll Reinvestment Grant ­Program.

Kim Turner, director of Torrance Transit, noted that “service expansion and delivery is a delicate balance of opportunity, timing, funding and resources. A transit agency may wish to expand or enhance service on a popular bus route, but, may lack one of these key elements in which to move forward. Equally as important is the sustainability of the project or service to ensure its ongoing success, long after its initial launch.”

Torrance Mayor Patrick Furey said, “By utilizing public transit, we are all doing our part to help reduce traffic congestion by removing single-occupancy vehicles from the road, and thus helping to lower vehicle emission levels and greenhouse gases.”

Among the officials kicking off Torrance Transit’s 4X Express bus service between Torrance, CA, and Los Angeles were Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts Jr., third from left; Torrance Mayor Patrick J. Furey, fourth from left; and Torrance Transit Director Kim Turner, fourth from right.
