Why Metro is not runing 28 line to the beach? It’s starts at Century city mall to Downtown. Why not strech to end of W. Olympic Blvd in Santa Monica?
RUN A EXPRESS LINE BETWEEN SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN AND NORTH HOLLYWOOD STATION. 3 AM ONLY TO SFMM AND 3 PM TRIPS BACK TO NORTH HOLLYWOOD. THE CURRENT “ALTERNATIVE” OF TAKING SC757 AND THEN TRANSFERRING TO ANOTHER BUS LINE IS UNNECESSARY. LINE SC 757 DOES NOT RUN AT NIGHT.. USE MEASURE R FUNDS TO OPERATE THE PLOT LINE FOR 3 MONTHS.
The 704 needs extra service. It runs one Rapid service bus into Santa Monica between the 8 – 9 am rush hour. Why? Santa Monica blvd is one of the arteries of LA and needs more Rapid service.
