    Re: Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort

    Maybe to the airport by 2021, according to this:
    Metro Gold Line

    Problem will be that MTA would be going into San Bernardino County. Bureaucratic issues will arise.

    To Azusa by September 2015, according to this:

    "North of Strip" sounds slightly inconvenient.
    But North Las Vegas, 3 miles north of Downtown, sounds a lot inconvenient.
    Where they stopping, at the race track??

    ​Too bad. A train would have been a lot better than making that drive.

    Look at the bright side. By car, you get to stop and catch the tourist action on and near the border.

    LA METRO RAIL NEWS:

    Getting Congressional approval will be an uphill battle.

    Still, the plan is intriguing if for no other reason than contemplating the alternative: having to wait until the late 2020s or the 2030s for several transit projects to be complete. The example most often cited is the Purple Line Extension, which would serve the second-largest job base in L.A. County but won't be complete to Westwood until 2036 under current funding schedules.


    An acceleration plan could get it to Westwood by the mid-2020s and mean that the project could be built at once instead of in fits and starts for the next 20-plus years.


    Other projects that could be accelerated include the Eastside Gold Line Extension, the Sepulveda Pass Transit Corridor, the South Bay Green Line Extension and the West Santa Ana Branch Corridor. Some will need other funds outside of Measure R to be completed.

    This thread has been quiet a while.

    I've heard all sorts of speculative things that the money is here or it's gone for various projects, but nothing with real data. Anyone here and real news?

    Re: Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort

    CA must be out of the country. He keeps us up with this stuff.

    There was something about Crenshaw Line and its connection to LAX a few weeks ago.

    I think it might be better to have a large security-and-luggage check-in building at the Crenshaw Line station, then a PeopleMover to take travelers to their terminal. Making people drag luggage around when they don't have to is a bad idea.

    Here, from AUG 11:
    Newest train to LAX will still come up short, at least at first - latimes.com

    http://graphics.latimes.com/towergra...-train-to-lax/

    So, of the three, under the airport would probably be best, if only that airport wasn't already there.
    Or, even better: Take the first route, and instead of going all the way to the airport, turn around at the first stop marked "area stations and routes," and put the large check-in-and-luggage-and-security-building there, and use PeopleMover for the rest of the way.

    Hopefully the LA HSR local bond money would be enough to get trains going in the city.

    The California High Speed Rail Authority is without enough money to build the train system throughout California anytime soon....hopefully it will happen down the road a might. A bit of light exists in that a small amount of land has been cleared in the San Joaquin Valley for the project.

    LAX would be a perfect place for a building that houses check-in, security and baggage facilities. It would be way cool for a People Mover to travel between that station and the Disneyland resort.

    Re: Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort

    Under the runways would be tough but some could be excavated instead of bored.

    I do think the potential station is important as I believe that will replace shuttle to the rental lots.

    As far as remote check in that would be nice, but security should stay in the airport. Ideally with less check in space needed, more security check area could be added.
