  1. I am sure there are projects where this make sense, but these kinds of things should have been covered 15-20 years ago.

  2. This is the first time I’ve heard that the line will terminate in Westchester. I thought the line was supposed to go all the way through while the infill station was being completed. Is this a new development?

    • Hi Thomas;

      As slide 8 shows, the initial segment of the Crenshaw/LAX Line will run to the Westchester station to accommodate work on the Airport Metro Connector station. Service to the new Aviation/Century station is expected in 2023 once the station platforms for the AMC station have been completed.

  3. there is NO need to take 10-20-30 years to build a system that should have been completed in the 1990’s or early 2000’s at the very latest!

    ridiculous!

    shame on YOU!

    • You can blame Zev Yaroslavsky and Proposition A for that. We would have had a lot more built out sooner if it weren’t for him!

  4. Pico needs to be renamed to Pico/South Park, Pico/Convention Center or South Park/Convention Center after the RC opens since the E Line will also serve Pico/Aliso

  5. Bigger problem is the Redondo Beach portion of the “Green Line” will always be a low use stub. Even if they get it to Torrance. Maybe if it gets to Wilmington and Long Beach on the south end will decent ridership build. They messed up on the north end by turning a very expensive land right of way owned by Metro on Slauson into an expensive bike path, What a waste. The Redondo/Torrance line should have continued north through the LAX station, Inglewood and turn onto the Slauson right of way stoping at Western, Vermont, Harbor Busway, Avalon and then stopping at Blue Line/WSAB station near South Gate. Lots of north south feeders into this line and ultimately, would have been the 4th line to service LAX.. Another sign of poor planning by Metro not to prepare for connections and future lines as they build current lines.
