4 INTROUTION The Short Range Transit Plan update is prepared in accordance with the Los ngeles ounty Metropolitan Transportation uthority (Metro) and Federal Transit dministration (FT) planning requirements. KGROUN The ig lue us () is a line department of the ity of Santa Monica and is governed by the ity s seven-member ity ouncil. The ity of Santa Monica has historically taken an aggressive approach to providing Santa Monica and Westside rea residents with public transit services. In 1928, the Santa Monica ity ouncil initiated bus service under powers granted by rticle 11, Section 9 of the onstitution of the State of alifornia 1. The first Santa Monica bus service provided a transit link between the rapidly growing West Los ngeles-santa Monica area and entral Los ngeles with a 12-mile bus line linking the Santa Monica ivic enter and beach area with the Pico-Rimpau terminal of the Los ngeles Railway, via Pico lvd. The depression years and World War II prompted expansion of bus services with new routes and additional services. In 1951, the ity ouncil purchased the ay ities Transit ompany, a private transit company that had provided the local transit services in the West Los ngeles-santa Monica ay rea. Originally, the ity of Santa Monica transit service was called the Santa Monica Municipal us Lines, but customers usually referred to their transit service as the ig lue us, and in 1997 the ity of Santa Monica formally changed the name of the bus service to Santa Monica s ig lue us. us service continues to be operated under the ity s governance and is popularly known as the ig lue us. 1 " municipal corporation may establish, purchase and operate public works to furnish its inhabitants with light, water, power, heat, transportation, or means of communication. It may furnish these services outside its boundaries except within another municipal corporation which furnishes the same service and does not consent."

5 SETION I SYSTEM UPTE

6 SERVIE RE The ig lue us () is the primary local fixed-route transit operator serving the ity of Santa Monica and adjacent Westside communities including: Pacific Palisades, West Los ngeles, rentwood, Westwood, University of alifornia Los ngeles (), heviot Hills, south Robertson, Mid-ity, Westchester, Marina del Rey, Venice, Playa Vista, and provides regional connections to the Los ngeles International irport, the Metro lue, Red, Purple, Gold, Green and Expo Line rail stations, Union Station, Metrolink, and mtrak inter-city rail services. Since its inception, the has followed a policy of continuous service modifications to keep pace with changing travel patterns in the service area, which now comprises approximately 51 square miles, well in excess of the 8.6 square mile area of the ity of Santa Monica. ROUTE INFORMTION There are 20 ig lue us fixed routes transporting passengers throughout the Westside and metropolitan Los ngeles ounty. They are categorized as follows: 1) traditional local transit service with designated pickup and drop off at stops spaced approximately every 0.2 mile on a specified route, typically on avenues and major boulevards; 2) commuter transit service that supplements local service by directly connecting neighborhoods with major employment centers or educational institutions only during weekday morning and afternoon peak commuting periods; 3) limited stop service (Rapid 3) along Lincoln lvd., which connects Santa Monica with Los ngeles International irport and the Metro Rail Green Line; Rapid 7 on Pico lvd.; Rapid 10, which connects Santa Monica to downtown Los ngeles; and Rapid 12, which terminates at. See Exhibit for a complete detailed description of the current ig lue us routes. Existing routes and current schedules are shown in Exhibit. SIGNIFINT IMPROVEMENTS Ongoing apital Improvements us Replacements will continue in accordance with the fleet management plan and as funds become fully available. contract was awarded in June 2012 to purchase up to 58 natural gas 40-foot buses with Gillig, LL. and buses have been and continue to be delivered on schedule. The 40-foot Gillig buses replace the 1997 New Flyer diesel buses. continues to convert from biodiesel to alternative fueled vehicles operating on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), ompressed Natural Gas (NG), or by hybrid-electric 1

7 propulsion. With the complete delivery of all 58 Gillig buses in 2014, 100 percent of the fleet will operate on natural gas. Implementation of the us Stop Improvement Program is a multi-phased project that will include updating the brand of the ig lue us, designing a new form of eye-level for bus stops, and designing and installing bus shelters and amenities. Phase I of the project is to focus on the 321 bus stops within the ity of Santa Monica which includes one very high volume stop, 48 high volume stops, 37 medium volume stops, and 235 low volume stops. contract for fabrication and installation of the shelters and amenities was awarded on June 25, 2013 to West Valley Investment Group, Inc. Installation of the first shelter is expected to occur in pril The program will include street furniture, trash cans, real-time transit information at high volume boarding locations and other customer amenities. System wide implementation of improved bus stops and information at the over 1,000 bus stops outside the ity of Santa Monica is anticipated over the next three years. The ig lue us continues to be involved with the regional Transit ccess Pass (TP) program, in conjunction with procurement of a replacement fare collection system. The TP program will allow passengers to ride multiple transit systems with a single fare medium utilizing smart card technology. Issuing unique electronic passes will provide enhanced convenience and security to passengers and allow for more accurate reporting of travel patterns in the region. contract was awarded to LEIP for stateof-the-art fareboxes with an anticipated installation schedule for Winter with Metro s lite validators in Upgrading the current asset management system will allow the to better provide reports to the ity and funding entities (e.g. Los ngeles Metropolitan Transit uthority) on performance and cost accounting. Improved reporting tools will help the manage its fleet more effectively by providing access to detailed work order, parts and billing history information along with key performance measurement data. long with the improved reporting, Enterprise sset Management (EM) will enable the to closely monitor ongoing expenditures from the moment parts are ordered, as opposed to the current financial system reflecting the expenditures after invoicing. EM will also integrate asset management data with FMS and share certain types of data between all our Trapeze systems and the atrf system (hub-odometer system). SERVIE PLNNING Preliminary lternatives for High apacity Short istance Transit onnections with Expo Light Rail Phase II of the Metro Expo Line consists of a seven-mile rail extension from the current terminal in ulver ity to 4 th St. in Santa Monica. ll seven of the new stations will be 2

8 in the ig lue us service area. onstruction began in late 2011 and completion is anticipated for late 2015 or early In the fall of 2013, will embark on a comprehensive study of integration with the eight stations on the Expo Line that will be in the service area. They include the already opened Venice/Robertson station in ulver ity, and the following stations, which are all slated for completion by the time the Expo Line goes into service: Palms, Westwood, Sepulveda, undy, ergamot, 17 th Street-SM, and downtown Santa Monica stations. s part of this study, ig lue us will examine existing conditions with regards to the bus service, feeder lines for all stations, bus rail interface at or near each station, key destinations, best practices review for bus/rail integration, and pending new developments. This study includes a substantial stakeholder and public participation process, a Title VI review of proposals, and a follow-up study one year after implementation. Goals of the study will be the effective integration of first and last mile trips from Expo, elimination of low performing or duplicative services, integration with Expo and other intermodal connections, a budget neutral plan, and adjustment of the predominant east-west orientation of the ig lue us system to one more balanced with the new transit needs present after the arrival of the Expo Line. ig lue us is also an active participant in a series of land use and zoning studies being conducted around various stations. Given that many of the stations along Phase II are built with little to no parking, and few, if any bus berths, much of the bus/rail integration will take place outside of the immediate envelope of the station footprint, and is part of a larger effort to create intermodal facilities adjacent to the stations on other parcels or on street. Recent Service Improvements Route 3 & Rapid 3: In June of 2013, Route 3 received an extra bus on the line to help facilitate on-time performance during the heavy summer beach traffic period. In ugust 2013, new midday service was added every 30 minutes to the Rapid 3 for the first time. Previously this route was a weekday peak service only. s demand on the Lincoln corridor continues to grow, both Route 3 and Rapid 3 are expected to continue to demand more resources. Route 4 & 9: These routes were rerouted through downtown Santa Monica for greater efficiency and on-time performance. Route 7 and Rapid 7: In June 2013, ig lue us increased the base weekday frequency on Route 7 and Rapid 7 from every 15 minutes to every 12 minutes to help deal with routine overloaded conditions. dditionally, all Rapid 7 buses were extended 3

9 the full length of the route from downtown Santa Monica to the end of the Purple Line at Wilshire and Western, rather than having some buses terminate at Rimpau Terminal. oth lines were given memory schedules (departing at the same time after the hour, each hour all day, so as to facilitate memorization), and the departure times at downtown Santa Monica, Rimpau, and Wilshire and Western are now identical, so that one can easily memorize the schedule in both directions. Route 8: Weekday frequency has been changed from every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes between the hours of 9:00am and 3:30pm as of ugust 2013 due to light ridership. Route 9: In February 2013, two hours of run time and layover were added to the Route 9 weekday schedule in order to facilitate on-time performance. Route 44 Sunset Ride: The frequency of this route was reduced for the summer of 2013 from every 15 minutes to every half hour due to low demand when Santa Monica ollege was not in session. In ugust, 15 minute service frequency resumed on a shorter route. The northern leg of this route was truncated while the rts & Entertainment Santa Monica ollege campus is closed for two years for reconstruction. Since this route primarily depends on Santa Monica ollege students, faculty and staff for ridership, the route is being run only between SM main campus and the SM undy (airport) campus. This change is initially being run as a detour and will be brought to public hearing in September 2013 for ratification. The route travels from SM undy campus to Ocean Park/ 17 th Street, then (R) 17 th, (L) Pearl, (R) 16 th, (R) Pico, (R) 20 th, (L) Ocean Park and regular route back to the SM undy campus. : The evening and weekend ckerman bus terminal at closed in July 2013 for two years for the completion of a hotel across the street. operations have been moved to a temporary facility located on harles E. Young rive in front of Parking Structure 2 for the duration of the construction. Low performing individual trips were eliminated in ugust 2013 on Routes 1, 2, 5, 6, 12, and Rapid 12 due to low ridership. Santa Monica ollege (SM) Partnership: In July 2013, and SM renewed the ny Line nytime transit pass program through June 30, The new agreement increased revenue 8% over the 2013 agreement. SM now accounts for 16 percent of all ridership. University of alifornia, Los ngeles () Partnership: and renewed the unlimited travel ruingo! transit pass program through June 30, riders now constitute 14 percent of all ridership. 4

10 PLNNE IMPROVEMENTS Fiscal Years 2014 apital Improvements The is in the process of procuring a business intelligence tool that will permit the collection and reporting of data across multiple software systems. The objective of this tool is to provide comprehensive metrics on key operating performance measures. The website received a new look, offering improved functionality and software upgrades in The former site was over eight years old. The upgrades offer online transit information and the ability to purchase fare media online with a credit card. The next website enhancement, an improved Trip Planner, is currently being tested for launch by the end of the calendar years includes the provision of real-time bus information, a.k.a. next bus arrival times. fter that, the next customer service technology to be launched early 2014 is an interactive voice/dial tone recognition phone system which will provide all of the same functions the website does so customers who prefer to use their phone can access the same service information any time of the day or night. urrently in development for launch in 2014 is a mobile version of the website that will provide customers with trip planning data optimized for fastest loading and clearest display via Internet-enabled mobile phones. staff will also be focused on determining alternatives for providing economical, efficient, dependable, frequent and direct services to and from current and new generators to the three rail stations for the Expo Light Rail. will engage a professional services firm to assist with the planning effort which will include: 1) approach to providing mobility management to the 4 th Street Terminus and circulation in downtown Santa Monica; 2) modifying the current fixed route system to enhance service to all three new rail stations and 3) feasibility of providing community or neighborhood circulators or shuttles to connect Santa Monica residents to work locations, shopping and entertainment venues. Service hanges Other service improvements planned for the remainder of FY 2014, include measures aimed at improving on-time performance. In July 2013, added the P Gateway and PLN modules from Trapeze, giving the agency greater ability to accurately assess running times and to improve on-time performance. will use this data to improve running times in the February 2014 service changes. dditionally, will continue with an incremental approach to reducing overcrowding by eliminating low ridership trips and moving resources to lines that routinely experience overcrowding with added trips or increased frequency. s part of this effort, held community meetings in ugust 2013 and presented final recommendations to the ity ouncil at a public hearing in September 2013 regarding the elimination of Route 11, which performed poorly. 5

11 In early 2013, a study of 43 candidate corridors of L ounty Metropolitan Transportation uthority, was conducted to further develop recommendations for an effective county-wide us Rapid Transit (RT) system and to narrow the field of corridors for further study to 12 or 15. Four corridors were examined in this analysis; Lincoln, Olympic, Pico and Westwood. Routes were evaluated based on network connectivity, existing ridership and ridership potential. When all factors were considered with equal weight, the corridors ranked as follows; Lincoln 27 th, Olympic 7 th, Pico 6 th, and Westwood 19 th. While Pico and Olympic were ranked for potential further study on their merit, Westwood and Lincoln were not. Of these two corridors, Lincoln carries a much larger number of passengers, and also suffers from greater on-time performance issues. It also carries the second highest number of passengers in the system behind the Pico corridor. The ity of Santa Monica approved a limited RT treatment for their portion of the Lincoln corridor, which has not been implemented in light of the fact that the Los ngeles portion of the corridor is not currently intended for RT treatment. With the opening of Expo, the continued steady ridership increases on both the Rapid and Local lines on the Lincoln corridor, and the fact that the corridor will soon connect the Green Line, Expo Line and the airport, is desirous of seeing the Lincoln corridor included for further study along with the Pico Line. Service changes expected for the Expo Light Rail Integration are expected to be substantially designed during FY 2014, but not executed. fter an initial round of public meetings in winter 2014 and a review of current conditions, will conduct market analysis and demand modeling on different proposed and suggested route configurations in order to narrow the field of ideas for new route structures. will then go back out for a second round of public meetings to reveal these new routing ideas. This second set of meeting is scheduled for the beginning of FY2015. will bring a fare change to the Santa Monica ity ouncil in September This change is the elimination of the local transfer in favor of wider use of the day pass currently available for $4. There will be no change in price proposed for the day pass or to the base fare. Service Improvements beyond 2014 With the arrival of the Expo Light Rail, service improvements for the immediate future will be concerned with how to best provide connectivity to the rail line, and how these new routing needs will affect the rest of the system. Several new corridors will be examined for their potential to assist in connectivity, and key area destinations will be examined individually. There has been extensive preliminary work done in this area, and yet, as the project grows near, new stakeholders are emerging and making their needs clear. The comprehensive integration study will help to clarify which services will have the greatest potential to generate new ridership, and how the system can absorb those services. 6

12 Proposition 1 alifornia voters approved Proposition 1 in the November 2006 general election. Proposition 1 enacts the Highway Safety, Traffic Reduction, ir Quality, and Port Security ond ct of 2006 to authorize up to $ billion in State general obligation bonds over the next six years. These funds include $3.6 billion statewide to the Public Transportation Modernization, Improvement and Service Enhancement ccount (PTMISE). These funds are available to transit operators over the next six years for eligible transit capital projects. Final appropriations are dependent on the State Legislature s approval and the State s issuance of bonds. Since 2008, received over $12.4 million and it is anticipated Santa Monica s ig lue us will receive approximately $5.1 million over the next five years. Funds from PTMISE will be used toward transit bus replacements and other bus related capital projects. anticipates approximately $267,000 each year to be available for transit security capital improvements. Safety and Security is further discussed below. Safety & Security The epartment of Homeland Security (HS) has identified as a Tier 1 gency, having mid-level risk. Through HS, can seek funds for training, planning, and capital projects. apital project funding will be sought to implement and enhance security in and around the campus and its facilities as well as at major transit interface locations, such as the downtown transit mall and other locations where connects with other transit operators. Threat and Vulnerability ssessment (TV) was conducted in The update assisted in identifying areas to improve security of its assets and ensure front line employees are equipped to handle such incidents and emergencies. continues to coordinate its security activities with the ity s police department and Los ngeles ounty transit operators through the Regional Transit Security Working Group. With the Proposition 1 Security Funds, is currently in the design phase of improving the facility perimeter with new security fencing, gates and employee/visitor access system. In addition, will upgrade its aging on-board video surveillance system to a new technology that will permit automating the digital video recording (VR) download process. The new system will reduce the amount of labor hours required to retrieve video as current staff is required to visit each vehicle and retrieve data manually. Lastly, will continue to provide security training for its front line employees. 7

13 MERINS WITH ISILITIES T () ased on the FY 2011 FT Triennial Review, the was in compliance with all mericans with isabilities ct () requirements. ll vehicles are compliant with kneeling low floor capability, ramps, wheelchair securement locations, and appropriate signage. ll vehicles have voice annunciators to assist the visually challenged riders. utomated voice announcements are made at all stops; announcements can be heard inside the bus and by passengers waiting at stops outside the bus. ll new and replacement vehicles will be compliant. The ig lue us is a member agency of ccess Services, Inc., the county-wide mandated complementary Paratransit service within Los ngeles ounty. also contracts additional paratransit services for its ity residents. In FY 2008, the ity purchased six vehicles, with funding from Metro to support the ongoing operations of this service. The ity of Santa Monica ial--ride serves both the senior and disabled community. ONGOING INITITIVES The ig lue us is committed to regional coordination working with Metro and the other municipal transit operators in delivering transit services. s activities continue to support the regional initiatives to improve passenger travel time, customer information, and efficient tracking of resources through the implementation of the following local and regional programs and projects: Regional oordination continues to participate and support the following regional programs: us Rapid Transit Service Rapid Shelter Program Metro Transit Security Working Group Metro us Operations Subcommittee Metro Technical dvisory ommittee Transit ccess Pass (TP) ommittee oordinated Real Time Transit Information Program oordinated Transit Signal Priority System igital ommunications To improve the availability, clarity and sustainability of information provided to customers, will launch new styles and modes of customer communication this year. In alignment with the ity s sustainability plan, has been shifting customer information to digital and voice activated platforms instead of print. The website was redesigned to offer new and improved functionality in The upgrades provide 8

14 interactive trip planning that allows passengers to input their trip origination and destination points and receive multiple options for how to complete a trip using the ig lue us. Upcoming enhancements include real-time bus information and deployment of real-time bus information via a mobile website that will provide customers with trip planning data optimized for the fastest loading and clearest display via Internetenabled mobile phones in early Then, by ugust 2014, will introduce an even more streamlined, complimentary mobile application to customers using Internetenabled phones. ommunity Outreach In 2013 fortified its community outreach efforts via the creation of new tools and communication methods in order to engage and inform neighborhood, business, education, media and development partners in operational decisions and the planning of future initiatives. Tools developed include a comprehensive database of stakeholder groups and contacts along with an editorial calendar. ontent for partners with digital screen feeds is currently in development. Social media outreach has been launched and will be expanded over the next year via e-newsletter software, Facebook and Instagram accounts. dditionally, a Twitter account is being used to disseminate service alerts in a timely manner. have been established and maintained to Outreach staff has begun and will continue to make presentations on a regular basis about Expo Planning Project (integration) and obtaining feedback from non-riders and constituents to plan for the introduction of s new fareboxes and fare media. Presentations have and will continue to be made to the following groups on a rotating basis: neighborhood associations, business improvement districts, local government ommissions (e.g. Senior and isability ommission, etc.) and community planning meetings (e.g. owntown Santa Monica circulation meetings, campus planning, etc.). Staff is leveraging participation by distributing market research surveys at these meetings, special events and also via web-based surveys. ustomer Information To support the move to digital communications for riders who might not always have access to the internet, will also be launching a new 24/7 Voice ctivated ustomer Phone Service. On-street and onboard signs are also being redesigned to be easier to read and will be deployed more broadly for easy rider access. Passenger Travel Time The FMS system has been instrumental in improving customer access to transit and service information. Implementation of the following activities will further improve passenger travel time: Real-time transit information at high volume stops Sales and acceptance of EZ transit pass sticker on TP cards 9

15 Signal priority systems Passenger Travel Experience The Government & ommunity Relations ivision of is developing a highly visible and branded bus shelter and bus stop information system so customers can easily identify the system, the bus line and information about the service. The following projects are the major components of s efforts to improve the passenger travel experience: us Stop & Shelter (Rapid & Local) Improvement Program Real Time Transit Information Transit Information Redesign (Targets & Eye-levels) Implement Universal Fare System Efficiently Track Resources The ig lue us FMS allows the ig lue us to track the location of its vehicles. The ig lue us also uses a Maximus Fleet/FuelFocus software program to track maintenance and fueling of all ity of Santa Monica vehicles and is upgrading to EM. The program is used to determine the total cost per mile of maintaining and fueling each ity vehicle. Staff is currently working with these software programs to improve tracking of assets and status of bus stops: us dvanced Fleet Management System program Enterprise sset Management (EM) software program us Stop sset Management Software Fleet Management Plan Preventative Maintenance Systems 10
