  1. Why no physical connection with the Expo Line? MTA is creating another isolated line like the Gold Line. There is no committed and funded connection to the Green Line. What a way to run a railroad.

  2. Why does Metro keep calling the Crenshaw Line the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor? The Line is a mile east of LAX.

    • Hi Warren;

      The short answer is that’s the name chosen for the project by the Metro Board of Directors and that the project will connect to LAX via either light rail or (perhaps more likely) a people mover.

    The Crenshaw Line is supposed to end underground at the Expo Line. Therefore unless they build a coonecting track from under ground to street level the connection can not be made.

  4. LAX wants the People Mover but, doesn’t have the $$$ to build it. I believe LAX plans to start building the People Mover in 2028. Now everybody wants the People Mover to be built now but, there is no money to build it. At one time the Green Line was going to be extended to LAX. So much to do with so little money.

  5. Since plans were completed to go into LAX for the Green Line and all of the property involved with building it is owned by LAX it seems the simple and quickest solution is to proceed with the original plan.

  6. Mike, The Crenshaw Line will connect to the Green Line and continue south, the Green Line will head north along the Crenshaw Line to Century and Aviation, but with plans at LAX, may go west, along with the Crenshaw Line to the proposed ITF close to LAX’s Bus Transit facility on 96th street.

    As currently proposed and funded the Crenshaw Line will only go to Manchester. Any further construction will be a second phase and said phase for both the Crenshaw Line and Green Lines will leave the Crenshaw Line isolated until the second phase is completed. This is why the downtown connector is being built, to connect the Blue Line and Expo Line with the isolated Gold Line. The downtown connector in fact is a redundant segment providing the same service as the Red/Purple Line.
