LOS ANGELES — With the start of a new year, the Los Angeles Metro is celebrating new appointments to its board of directors.

Kathryn Barger, who was recently elected as Log Angeles County Supervisor for the Fifth District, has joined the agency’s board in addition to Janice Hahn, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Robert Garcia, the mayor of Long Beach, has also been appointed to the board.

The new members will join other elected directors on the agency’s 13-member Metro Board.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is responsible for the city’s LA Metro Rail system, which is comprised of two heavy rail subway lines and four light rail lines.

One of the agency’s biggest projects is the Purple Line extension, which recently received $1.6 billion in federal aid to begin construction on its extension of light tail service into Beverly Hills and Century City.
