    • Hi aspieger;

      I don’t. I think the process will be similar to the one followed recently by the Foothill Gold Line project — the Construction Authority will announce completion, the handover process to Metro will take place and then an opening announced. Stay tuned!

      • Thanks Steve. I guess I was dreaming that it may open around the same time as the Gold Line extension – but just saw the notice above says ‘Spring 2016’ – which doesn’t quite hit March 5th. Also dreaming of a better way to get to Union Station from the Westside, outside of the BB10 hours… Will stay tuned!

      • I’m sure you’ve been asked that question so many times on various posts (I’ve asked you about it when the Gold Line Extension to Azusa announced its March 5 opening date). Take it with a grain of salt if you (and readers of The Source) want, but I’m predicting an April 23, 2016 opening for the Expo Line Phase 2 to Santa Monica – which would take place around the 4th anniversary of the opening of the Expo Line to Culver City.

    • Metro has said that initially trains will run every 12 minutes on the new segment of the Expo Line. But keep in mind that this is a test and things can change. If trains are running, I think you won’t have to wait too long to see one — but no guarantees.
