Metro is beginning the environmental review phase for the Sepulveda Transit Corridor project, which will build a heavy rail line or monorail between the San Fernando Valley and the Westside. A second phase will eventually be built to LAX.
Metro will also be holding two virtual meetings in the coming weeks. Each meeting will feature the same information. Please see this Source post for many more details on the six project alternatives to be studied.
Tuesday, January 11, 2022, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, January 22, 2022, 10 a.m. to Noon
As part of the environmental review, a formal public comment period is now open and will run through February 11, 2022. Metro encourages the public to submit comments on the project during this time — including any thoughts on the six alternatives under study (see below) and issues that Metro should consider during the environmental review.
An online presentation on the project is here.
Here’s how to submit comments:

Is there any information on how the southern termini under consideration would affect the second phase connecting to LAX? Specifically I’m looking at how much denser the area around Overland/Venice (that could be served by swinging slightly east from Expo/Sepulveda) is compared with the far less dense Mar Vista area. Expo/Bundy would serve a denser part of West LA but would appear to be less conducive to running the southern extension close to the dense parts of Palms and Culver City that are farther from those E Line stations.
Stop the insanity – drop the monorail folly from discussion.
