It consists of six lines, including two rapid transit subway lines and four light rail lines serving 93 stations. It connects with the Metro Busway bus rapid transit system and also with the Metrolink commuter rail system. Metro Rail, which had an average daily weekday ridership of 362,135 as of July 2016, is owned and operated by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and started service in 1990. It has been extended significantly since that time and several further extensions are either in the works or being considered.
