Auto Club Speedway Metrolink Train Service is a joint
demonstration project made possible in part by Clean Transportation
Funding from the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction
Review Committee (MSRC). The MSRC’s mission is to
fund projects that reduce air pollution to meet the region’s
clean air goals. Over its 22-year history, the MSRC has
assisted organizations throughout the Southland in removing
as much as 8,000 tons of harmful pollutants from the air
through innovative programs designed to reduce air pollution
from mobile sources.
MSRC is excited to partner with these organizations and
will provide up to $57,000 in Clean Transportation Funding
for the special Metrolink train service to the Auto Club
400. Having fans take public transportation to the races
takes cars off the road cutting congestion and air pollution,
which helps advance the MSRC’s mission to reduce
harmful emissions from mobile sources,” said L.A.
County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, who serves on the
Metrolink Board of Directors and MSRC as an appointee
from the South Coast Air Quality Management District.
