  1. Is this project really scheduled to be in operation by 2018? seems awfully optimistic, considering most people are expressing interest in LRT and the funding is not quite there yet for LRT.

    • Hi Jose;

      The 2018 completion date is from the Measure R expenditure plan. At this point, that’s what Metro is still shooting for — but I do think it depends on what the project ultimately is, as well as whether or not this project ends up linked to the Sepulveda Pass project.

  2. “Transfer for travel over Sepulveda Pass.” – What the hell?? If this is the intention then just make it BRT. While an LRT is more practical, to an extent it is also pointless for people to fight for an LRT in this corridor and be slapped in the face with a transfer @ Ventura to keep going further south. I hope the people of valley fight against a forced transfer, if that is the case.

    Maybe I had misinterpreted that statement, buts that’s the way I’m understanding it.

  3. Hi Steve

    Do you think you could upload the potential maintenance facility locations for the LRT alternative. Apparently they had them on display at the Scoping Meetings.

  4. I really hope it’s LRT. couldn’t we get HOT lanes on the 405 to help pay for this? and maybe also on the 5 to help link the gold line to noho?
