Our Approach

The Long Beach Transit (LBT) STAR Initiative stands for Systemwide Transit Analysis and Reassessment. The STAR Initiative will evaluate different types of service investments and consider possible changes to LBT’s services and routes. The year-long comprehensive analysis will take an in-depth look into current transit operations and anticipate future service needs to improve people’s ability to move around Long Beach and easily access everyday destinations today and beyond.

The STAR Initiative will identify the most important improvements to the Long Beach Transit system – new transit services, improvements to existing services, and new customer amenities. Ultimately, this document will serve as a road map for LBT to improve the customer experience and meet community needs for the next five to 10 years.

The STAR Initiative process consists of three phases over the next year:

  • Phase 1: Understand transportation needs
  • Phase 2: Identify a range of potential service scenarios to meet those needs
  • Phase 3: Evaluate service scenarios; choose a preferred network of routes and services; and define priority projects and plans.

Once complete, LBT plans to adopt recommendations from the STAR Initiative in late 2017.
