Carlsbad Company Consults On LA Metro

by The Editors on February 29, 2008

When the administrators of the Los Angeles Metro wanted to get an overview of how many people were riding their rails for free, they turned to Transportation Management and Design Inc., a Carlsbad-based company that “operates within the realm of passenger transportation, providing a spectrum of transit planning and operations consulting to public and private clients worldwide.”

What did TMD find out? They discovered that five percent of the people using the Metro during the week were riding free and that 10 percent of the Sunday riders weren’t paying. Doesn’t sound like a bad percentage to us, but based on TMD’s report Metro officials have decided to spend $61 million dollars to put in gates.
