The C/Green Metro Line is scheduled to build on to existing lines and go through Redondo Beach to Torrance by 2033, terminating at the new Giordano Regional Transit Center. The Torrance Chamber of Commerce and the City Council previously came out strongly in favor of the extension.
However, with our own District 5 Councilmember Aurelio Mattucci plus District 1's Jon Kaji recently voicing their fears that unhoused people might set up camps where the line ends, the City Council has agreed to discuss a 'no build' option at their October 24th Council Meeting. Ultimately, the LA Metro Board will decide on where to build the new lines, but its decision may be influenced by the feedback of residents of the cities to which it will travel.

As always, to express your thoughts to City Council, write to CityCouncil@TorranceCA.gov, or attend the Council meeting, beginning at 6:30 pm..
