Green Line to LAX Takes Another Step
As talks to extend the Green Line closer to LAX continue, the city will still have to figure out how to get people to each terminal from the new station. Councilman Bill Rosendahl last week proposed that a study be conducted about the feasibility of extending the train line directly into the Central Terminus area so a people mover can deliver travelers to their terminals, according to his motion:
An on-airport rail link inside the LAX Central Terminal Area (CTA) would provide the greatest convenience to passengers and encourage the use of the city's mass-transit system. Space constraints, however, have made such a proposal difficult to consider. The pending purchase by LAWA of the Park One property, adjacent to Terminal 1, may provide the first real opportunity to build an on-airport rail link at LAX.
"If we don't make it accessible, people won't use it," Councilwoman Janice Hahn told the Daily Breeze earlier this week in regards to the people mover/rail link connection. "It's time to right that wrong for the public."
The Park One property the motion speaks of was approved for purchase today by the full council with the high price tag of $126 million. The Green Line motion passed a city panel on Wednesday and will hit the council in the near future. If the line is extended, Metro said it could be as late as 2018 before it is completed, according to the Breeze.
