Project Summary

Project description

This strategic sustainability plan has been developed for Long Beach Transit (LBT) to respond to its sustainability objectives and to complement its Strategic Plan.

LBT has already taken several major steps to become a sustainable transit agency. Its commitment is clear from the decisions made about its bus fleet-by 2020, all of LBT's bus fleet will be zero-emission vehicles. It has also provided its staff with Environmental and Sustainable Management System (ESMS) training, and undertaken several sustainability initiatives over the past decade.

In order to obtain agency information relevant for this plan, the research team conducted a series of initial interviews with top management in the fall of 2018, and subsequent interviews with the Board of Directors, as well as reviewed relevant agency information and agency documents. The research team conducted another set of follow-up interviews in the winter of 2018-19 and conducted a workshop with management staff in the spring of 2019.
