Project Description

The City's Transit Department (Torrance Transit) is a municipally-operated transit system in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County.  Torrance Transit has been in continuous operation for over 70 years serving the needs of South Bay residents.  Torrance Transit directly operates a network of eleven (11) fixed bus routes serving Torrance and the neighboring cities of Carson, Compton, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Lomita, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  System-wide, Torrance Transit experiences approximately 3.9 million passenger boardings per year.  The purpose of building a new Torrance Transit Park and Ride Regional Terminal (Transit Terminal) is to create a strategically-located, multi-modal facility that meets regional needs. It will be located on a five (5) acre parcel at 465 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, CA. The Transit Terminal will reduce single occupancy vehicle trips due to its close proximity to the I-405 and I-110 freeways 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 will include, but not be limited to, the following:

  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified Transit Terminal buildings, with areas for small retail use; monthly pass sales; infrastructure for 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.

  • Transit Terminal with eight bus berths, and the ability for two of them to serve 60-foot articulating buses

  • Layover space for buses to accommodate current and future demands

  • 250-space parking lot and outdoor bicycle storage area, with planned future expansion of a parking structure

  • Vehicle Drop-off Zone

  • Passenger information kiosks (with real-time information) and security amenities (CCTV Systems) 

  • Anti-vandalism and anti-skating devices

The project is being constructed in 2 Phases.  Phase 1 will construct the site’s rough grading and underground drainage system.  Phase 2 will construct the buildings and parking area; circulation roadways; utilities; street entrances and traffic signal improvements.

Project Status

Phase 1 work was completed in April 2016.  Design of Phase 2 (buildings and parking area; utilities; street and traffic signal improvements) is expected to be completed in summer 2017.
