Public Meetings Announced for Downtown's Light Rail Regional Connector

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.


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
