Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) recently began studying the ways
in which bicycling, for transportation and in combination with transit, can reduce automobile use and lower
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The first of these focused studies concentrated on the Metro Orange
Line and parallel bicycle path. This Bicycle Rail Trip Analysis and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Study
looks more broadly at bicycle trips to and from Metro Rail. The purpose of this study is to establish the
benefits of providing an integrated transportation system where bicyclists are accommodated at train
stations and on trains.
