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.
