Above is the good word from the Expo Line Construction Authority. The final station for the second phase of the Expo Line will be at Colorado & 4th, making the train convenient to the Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica Place, the Santa Monica Pier, the beach and beach bike path and easy bus and biking connections south to the businesses and eateries along Main Street, as well as Rose and Abbott Kinney in Venice. Woot woot!
The Expo Line should be called when finished the santa Monica Line. like the Pacific Electric called it in the 1930’s to 1940’s. The subway to the sea should never be built it cost to much money and it should be on street level like a rail service should be now.
Once the Expo Line is finished and reaches Santa Monica there will be much more people riding the train. Metro will have to add more cars to the Expo Line. Finally there will be a good way to get to the beach. I am not sure if the subway to the sea will ever reach the sea during most of our life times.
