LACMTA ("Metro") was created by the California State Legislature in April, 1993 through a merger of the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission and the Southern California Rapid Transit District.

"Transit" has been expanded to "Transportation" as the agency combined both countywide roles of the two predecessor agencies.

The agency is responsible for operating the clean air CNG powered Metro fleet, Rapid Bus lines, Metro Blue Line, Metro Red Line, Metro Green Line, Metro Gold Line and Metro Orange Line.

In addition to its operating function, it plans, funds and constructs multimodal transportation solutions throughout Los Angeles County.
