Alameda Corridor Agency Donates Computers to Schools

JUNE 17, 2002

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIF.   The public agency that built the Alameda Corridor freight rail expressway is providing surplus personal computers to three local schools.

The Governing Board of the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority (ACTA) voted June 13 to donate 10 personal computers to Wilmington Middle School, six personal computers to Holy Family Grammar School in Wilmington and five personal computers to Wilmington Park School.  ACTA has made similar donations in the past, including six personal computers each to Jordan High School and Banning High School in September 2001.

“These personal computers donated by the Alameda Corridor Transportation Authority directly benefit local schools by providing additional tools to enhance the learning environment for students,” said Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, Vice Chairwoman of the ACTA Governing Board.

ACTA Chief Executive Officer James C. Hanka said the agency plans to make additional donations of surplus equipment to non-profit organizations as agency operations wind down.

ACTA is a joint powers authority governed by the cities and ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.  The agency built the Alameda Corridor, a 20-mile-long freight rail expressway linking the ports to the rail yards east of downtown Los Angeles.  Alameda Corridor opened to freight rail traffic on April 15.
