Could NoHo Use a Streetcar?

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Now that the NoHo Arts District is up and coming, packed with 20 or so live theatres, new condos, new apartments, a new grocery store, a soon-to-be movie theatre and more, all running up, down and around Lankershim Blvd., is it time to talk about the NoHo Streetcar?

One that would run from the junction of the Orange and Red Lines. One that would run down to Lankershim, maybe passed the intersection of hell, aka Camarillo=Lankershim-Vineland. Maybe down to Moorpark and head back up via Vineland as shown to the right.

Some people find that even the 20-minute walk up Lankershim stops them from using the Red Line. And if they do, those local residents will drive to the station, a tactic that only works during non-peak hours when spaces are available. A few females have told us they are concerned of walking solo at night.

The NoHo Arts District has made leaps and bounds since the days of boarded up shops and true ghettoisms, yet it still has lots of room to grow. Maybe a streetcar fits into that too.
