Residents Near Expo Line are Driving Less and Exercising More

Since the Expo Line opened, people who live within a half mile of a station are driving 10 - 12  fewer miles each day, according to a new USC study looking at before and after impacts of the light rail line. 

Among the report’s findings:

• Residents living near Expo Line stations produced about 30 percent less carbon emissions from their vehicles after the opening of the rail line than did residents living farther from the stations.

• Those living near the Expo Line stations who were the least physically active before the line’s opening increased their moderate or vigorous physical activity by 8 to 10 minutes per day, as compared to those living farther away.

You can read the full report here.

The study was also covered in the Los Angeles Times.
