Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia was unanimously elected to a four-year term to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Board of Directors by the mayors and councilmembers from the cities of Los Angeles County.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to represent the region and Long Beach on the Metro Board. We have huge challenges ahead, including improving safety on the Blue Line, expanding rail service across LA County and ensuring cities receive their fair share of Measure M revenues," Garcia said.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority – Metro – is the transportation agency for the County of Los Angeles.  It operates the bus and rail system for the C=county as well as funding other transportation projects and programs.  The board is made up of 13 elected and appointed officials from throughout the county, including all five county supervisors and the mayor of Los Angeles.
