Metro held a scoping meeting Monday night to get input on the environmental study of the Airport Metro Connector (AMC). The project aims to build a new rail station near the intersection of Aviation Boulevard and 96th Street that would serve trains along the Crenshaw/LAX Line (which is currently under construction) and the Green Line and serve as a transfer point to the Automated People Mover to be built and operated by Los Angeles World Airports.
The AMC transit station would also include a bus plaza for Metro and other municipal bus agencies, an area for passenger pickup and drop-off, pedestrian and bike amenities. The plan is for the AMC station to be enclosed.
The people mover would serve three stations within the LAX Central Terminal Area and two other facilities the airport plans to build: a new Intermodal Transportation Facility where air passengers and employees could be picked up and dropped off and a new Consolidated Rent-A-Car Center.
The PowerPoint from the meeting is above. And here’s a link to a 35-minute video from the meeting. The main purpose of the meeting was to solicit public feedback/questions/concerns about issues the public wants to be addressed in the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the station.
If you want to chime in on at this stage, Metro needs to hear from you by March 9.
Los Angeles World Airports also has a website devoted to their Connecting LAX project to improve transportation to/from the airport. Here are a couple of people mover renderings from that site:
