Torrance, CA, Breaks Ground for Regional Facility

The city of Torrance, CA, recently broke ground for the Torrance Transit Park and Ride Regional Terminal, a facility that will feature eight bus bays and a park-and-ride lot and is designed to pass LEED certification.

Torrance Mayor Patrick J. Furey called the project a milestone for the city, adding, “This facility truly will be a regional transit center and a regional asset. It is a wonderful example of city staff working together and with outside agencies on a project that really will benefit so many.”

Los Angeles Metro is spearheading work on the multimodal facility, which will also serve Torrance Transit and possibly other area agencies.

Approximately 85 percent of the total funding for this project, $18.1 million, will come from Measure R, the half-cent sales tax increase approved by Los Angeles County voters in 2008, along with $2.4 million in state Propo­sition 1B bond money and $1 million from Torrance.
