It has come to my attention that one of the key benefits of the ORANGE LINE, signal synchronization, which allows Orange Line buses to turn the traffic signals green for buses when they approach an intersection… is missing from the Expo and Blue lines. How is it possible that we build these train lines to outpace traffic but then make them wait at red lights like buses on city streets? Couldn’t we shave a few minutes off of travel times by allowing signal priority to our light rail lines?
That makes complete sense. Why take a train if you have to site at red lights. How stupid is that!!!
Yes, it’s frustrating that the eastbound Expo line is consistently ten minutes late getting in to the 7th Street station, mostly due to signal delays.
When is the walkway for the orangeline/noho station going to start being constructed?
That project is in the design phase and is currently slated for completion in 2016.

The Regional Connector project is connecting the Blue Line, Expo Line and Gold Line. Construction will begin soon. The project is currently scheduled to be complete in 2020.

Love the lack of commitment to the two million people in the San Fernando valley. I don’t trust Metro and will gladly lead the No on R-2 campaign. I am tired of listening to ‘politico’ speak. How much did you spend of my tax money on the Lindero canyon on ramp project that does nothing to alleviate congestion. You cut down beautiful old growth trees to create a walking path. Shame on Metro. You should all be ashamed to be affiliated with this incompetent inefficient and lack of vision bureaucracy.

I remember hearing that Metro planned to release EIRs for the Green Line South Bay extension and Gold Line Eastside Phase 2 this summer. Any news on when they’ll be out?
The Gold Line DEIR should be out extremely soon, emphasis on extremely as there’s a lot of community interest in the project, even though a Measure R third decade project (sooner if funds can be found to accelerate). I don’t have a date for the Green Line study but I do know that it’s likely not anytime soon. Hope that helps,
