LA SkyRail Express Partners with Keolis to Deliver High-Capacity Transit System

LA SkyRail Express (LASRE) has partnered with Keolis to deliver a high-capacity SkyRail system between Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley and Westside.

This project aims to ease congestion on the I-405 Sepulveda corridor by offering a long-term sustainable solution that integrates with the city’s existing transit networks.

It is being delivered by a consortium consisting of John Laing, Skanska, BYD, Gensler, HDR, ACI and Innova, which was awarded the contract by the LA County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).

LASRE is working collaboratively with Metro to deliver this project in the shortest timeframe possible. This mission will now be supported by Keolis, which operates and maintains a range of transportation networks across 13 countries, including North America.

Michael Hoghooghi, LASRE CEO and Consortium Director said:

“LASRE has strengthened its team with the addition of Keolis, a global leader in the shared mobility market with over a century-long track record of enhancing the experience of transit passengers. Our aspirations for passenger delight and sustainability, align perfectly well between that of LASRE and Keolis.”

SkyRail is being designed with a peak line capacity of up to 22,000 passengers per hour in each direction, with a 2-minute headway.
