Riding the Rails (and Biking) Directly to LAX
And then there was a train...
There could be a day when you go from Wilshire Blvd. down Crenshaw Ave, crossing the path of the Expo Line (under construction right now), through Leimart Park, into Downtown Inglewood and eventually hit LAX before route ends, connecting to the Green Line.
That's one option, at least, for Metro's North/SouthCrenshaw-Prairie Transit Corridor Study. Tonight is the first of four public meetings to get a status report of the project and schedule for future steps. Since the last set of community meetings, Metro says some potential routes or alignments have been eliminated from further consideration and others have been added.
But What About Bicycles?
Even though the Bike Master Plan community process has been a disappointment so far, bicyclists will continue to show up to the public meetings, which are intended for people to provide input on bicycle policies, facility improvements and other related issues. Tonight's meeting is in West LA.
You can give input by taking taking an online survey.
