Grabinski Named Head of Transportation Agency

The new chairman of the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission--the entity charged with implementing a Southern California transportation network over the next 30 years--is Long Beach City Councilman Ray Grabinski.

In succeeding Los Angeles County Supervisor Ed Edelman as LACTC chairman for this year, Grabinski promised to include potential users of the proposed 300-mile METRO system in decision-making.

Grabinski expressed confidence that LACTC is “on the right track,” citing the opening of the Metro Blue Line, which has carried up to 18,000 passengers daily between Long Beach and downtown Los Angeles since service began in July.
