With the news that Metro is purchasing Los Angeles Union Station, I asked Metro followers on Twitter and Facebook yesterday for their suggestions on how to improve the train station. Here’s the first batch that I posted yesterday and below are a bunch more:
More tweets and Facebook comments, after the jump.
LibrarianJennie QuinonezSkinner How about improving transit hubs in other parts of the city ? ie the valley ???
Snuffy Rin easy/direct access from Gold Line platform to the Red Line Subway?
Jason Leung … but please make sure NOT to change the vintage looking passenger lobby. I love it every time I pass through it
Josh Gofive totally agree on better access to the gold/red transfer. It’s a bit ridiculous how it’s currently set up.
Elvi Brosniev It’d be nice to see a restaurant of sorts for people who don’t have the income of 1st-class Amtrak passengers. Traxx is ridiculously overpriced and those snack carts by the fountain and waiting lobby just don’t cut it.
Kai-Hsu Wu I’d like to see people can get to union stations by taking buses/rails without too much difficult. If people have to drive to one of the Expo/Gold line stations and get to Union stations, the plan fails.
Brian Lopez: 1. Wi-fi availible (Even if its not free – like from AT&T or T-Mobile), 2. Better mobile reception (especially in the subway)., 3. More Metrolink automated machines. 4. An updated arrival/departures screen — like the ones in an airport. 5. Better chairs.
