Although not approved by Metro's Board, that staff report with timelines of projects has created quite some talk around town.

The timetable they suggest for the "Subway to the Sea" has Mayor Villaraigosa unhappy and Southbay officials are not pleased either.

They "expected the MTA to extend the Green Line to Los Angeles International Airport as soon as 2015. Under the new draft, that project will not be done until 2018 at the earliest, and perhaps as late as 2022," reported the Press-Telegram.

And add to that the Crenshaw line that was set to be completed no later than 2018. Scratch that, the draft report now says 2029.
