Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (1977-1993)

The Los Angeles County Transportation Commission (LACTC) (1977-1993) was created by the State of California for the purposes of funding, planning, constructing and coordinating transportation improvement programs countywide. 

It later merged with the Southern California Rapid Transit District (SCRTD, 1964-1993) on April 1, 1993. 

LACTC was sucessful in passing two half cent sales taxes for transportation improvements.

These measures facilitated the construction of light rail, heavy rail (subway), HOV/Carpool lanes, busways, soundwalls, bicycle facilities, park-n-ride facilities and Intelligent Transportation Systems.
