Topic - Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (also known as Metro, MTA or LACMTA) is the California state-chartered regional transportation planning agency (RTPA) and public transportation operating agency for the County of Los Angeles, and is the successor agency to both the former Southern California Rapid Transit District and Los Angeles County Transportation Commission. The agency develops and oversees transportation plans, policies, funding programs, and both short-term and long-range solutions that address the county's increasing mobility, accessibility and environmental needs. The agency is the primary transit provider for the City of Los Angeles while the City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) operates its own Commuter Express bus service to outlying suburbs in the city and the popular DASH (Downtown Area Short Hop) mini-bus service in downtown and other neighborhoods in the city. The MTA has its headquarters in central Los Angeles. - Source: Wikipedia
