Public Meetings Announced for Downtown's Light Rail Regional Connector

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


If Metro's regional connector project is built, passengers will be able to commute between Pasadena and Long Beach without transferring from the Gold Line to the Red Line, then the Blue Line. Likewise, those traveling between East LA and Culver City (and maybe someday Santa Monica) will be able to skip a similar transfer process. That means faster travel times and more accessibility car-free.

As part of that plan, the transit agency must develop an environmental impact study and report with public input. Therefore, it's public meeting time to learn about the most recent developments and to share more thoughts:

Thursday, November 5, 2009; 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Lake Avenue Church 393 N Lake Ave, Pasadena
