The City's Transit Department (Torrance Transit) is a municipally operated transit system in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County.  Torrance Transit directly operates a network of eleven (11) fixed bus routes serving the City of Torrance and the neighboring cities of Carson, Compton, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Lomita, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  System wide, on average, Torrance Transit experiences approximately 3.9 million passenger boardings per year.  Torrance Transit has been in continuous operation for over 70 years serving the needs of South Bay residents. The purpose of constructing the Torrance Transit Park and Ride Regional Terminal (Transit Terminal) is to create a strategically located, multi-modal facility that meets the regional needs of South Bay residents. The construction of this facility will reduce single occupancy vehicle trips due to its close proximity to the I-405 and I-110 and its park and ride facilities. In addition the Transit Terminal will improve regional mobility linking Torrance Transit routes with other regional providers in the Transit Terminal.

The Transit Terminal at build-out shall include, but will not be limited to, the following:
. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified Transit Terminal building (approximately 15,000+ square feet), with the ability to house areas for small retail use, monthly pass sales, infrastructure to house ticket vending machines (TVMs), infrastructure for real time passenger information technologies (RTPI), operator layover area & amenities, supervisor offices, security office/post communications room, training/conference room and a storage room for janitorial supplies and sink;
. Transit Terminal with twelve bus berths, and the ability for two of them to serve 60-foot articulating buses;
. Sufficient amounts of layover space for buses to accommodate current and future demands;
. Approximately 250 space parking lot, with the ability to expand into an approximately 500 space parking structure;
. Drop-off Zone;
. Miscellaneous passenger information kiosks (including real-time information) and security amenities (CCTV Systems);
. Outdoor bicycle storage area;
. Anti-vandalism and anti-skating devices; and
. On-Site and Off-Site engineering design services for roadway, traffic signal, grading, drainage, sewer, water, electrical and communications,  infrastructure to City standards to provide optimal on-site circulation for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians.
