    In a way we should be building it. We should build something contemporary not two or three generations old.

    Especially since they are under pressure to come in under a certain total duration time according to the law. That is, CA HSR was created by a referendum that promised that you could get from LA to SF in around, or is it under, 3 hours... And if the urban areas outside each of these cities are slowing down the duration time, a solution would be to speed up the travel BETWEEN these cities, in the countryside.

    Well Caruso offered to "help pay for" the trolley. If they created a BID (business improvement district) for the area, it could pay for the trolley and streetscaping and make Fairfax district a pedestrian friendly and lively part of Los Angeles again. Right now it caters to an older clientele, it could do both.

    PURPLE LINE EXTENSION NEWS:

    The meeting covered the first 3.9-mile segment of the project, which will be built over the next decade and include three new stations at Wilshire/La Brea, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Cienega. Utility relocations are underway with more work to continue in 2014. Major construction is scheduled to begin in 2014; work on the La Brea station will start in the latter half of the year.

    Not sure where this "trolley" would go. Straight down Fairfax to Wilshire?
    Brightly colored buses that travel non-stop could do the same thing. A lot cheaper.

    I don't think the design of the Grove Trolley is street legal enough, people can jump on and off of it. I think he's thinking it will run up Fairfax like the horse drawn trolley at Disneyland. Splitting into two tracks around the stations, in the median, then converging as one bidirectional railway.

    CRENSHAW LIGHT RAIL TO LAX:

    Metro recommends contractor (and $160 million more) for Crenshaw/LAX Line

    Of the four proposals received by firms to build the 8.5-mile light rail line, Walsh/Shea was the lowest in terms of dollars and highest in terms of technical score. Metro staff have also recommended adding more contingency money to the project’s budget, bringing it north of $2 billion. That will require some money to be moved from other projects. Here’s our post about the contract and the Crenshaw/LAX Line. The Metro Board is scheduled to consider the contract recommendation by Metro staff this month. If approved, major construction would begin next year.

    LOS ANGELES METRO RAIL MAP - Including projects under construction:

    Considering that Orange County is the less populous neighbor to Los Angeles County, it would be wise to at least "plug in" to this expanding system... For now, Metrolink Commuter Rail is the only way that the two counties are connected by rail.

    This map was just released by the LA County MTA showing current lines and lines under construction... It shows how far we have come in such a short amount of time...

    Probably need another "regional" commission or bureau or agency.

    OC is less populous but it's still pretty dense (it's a lot smaller in size), which is a requirement for mass transit.
    Question then is: where do they live and where do they work and where do they want to go while not driving?

    Don't they need to get to Downtown LA, Century City, Santa Monica, Hollywood and Burbank like the rest of us? Those are the main job centers in LA County.

    I don't think so. The OC residents probably do not need to go to those places.
    They live in The OC for a reason: that's where the job is at.
    So, "The City" (not sure it's called that anymore), the resort area, Newport Beach, Irvine, maybe Long Beach in LA County.

    Re: Mass Transit 2 the Disneyland Resort

    Here's L.A.'s Mayor-Elect, last night, speaking about transportation:

    The most popular question was about rail through the Sepulveda Pass. Here's the new mayor's take: "I support rail through the Sepulveda Pass, probably with a two-tiered tunnel that will take cars (for a toll, helping to pay for the cost of building the tunnel) and transit from Sherman Oaks to Westwood in 10 minutes. We need a rail line that starts in the north Valley and hopefully gets to Westchester eventually, even LAX. I have already met with Art Leahy and with AECOM (who is doing scoping plans for the tunnel) and want to include moving this forward as part of my transportation and transit agenda."

    -- On the lack of north/south rail lines: "Crenshaw Line will be north-south, as would a Sepulveda/405 line. I've always thought it is strange how we fixate on East-West routes and streets at the expense of North-South ones."
