Are you worn out on public transportation meetings this month? Let's recap before we get to the latest. Current and upcoming meetings soliciting public feedback include the city's draft bicyle plan, the Crenshaw Line to LAX, bus lanes on Wilshire and major improvements to the Rosa Parks Station where the Blue and Green lines cross.

And now this.

Metro today announced a series of meetings about the Harbor Subdivision Transit Corridor Project, which covers a 26-mile freight rail corridor between Vernon and Wilmington in Los Angeles that b-lines through the Southbay (see a PDF map here). Possible connections could extend the line into downtown and Long Beach.
