Metro Looking to Improve 2nd Busiest Station, AKA Pedestrian Hell
Metro is sure putting on a good number of community meetings in October. From the Wilshire Bus Lanes project to the Crenshaw Line to LAX and now another one is set for a plan to overhaul the pedestrian experience at the second busiest rail station in the system (Metro/7th in downtown being the busiest) where the Blue and Green lines converge.
Here's how one transit user described the Wilmington/Imperial/Rosa Parks Blue Line Station, located in unincorporated Willowbrook, to LAist in an e-mail: "When you are waiting for the Green Line you are subjected to the freeway. When you are waiting for the Blue line, you are stuck in a dark area. Then, in order to access anything beyond the station pedestrians (and bicyclists!!!) must dodge trains, buses, and cars."
