A new blog has appeared on the blogLAsphere called ditch the car, take the metro and blogger, John, has created, revised and tweaked his idea on LA's future subway transit. "My LA subway plan is based upon latent but unrealized relationships that organize Los Angeles," he explains in an early post. "The core of the system is built upon two parallel corridors (the Red and the Purple Lines) connecting three central business districts (Downtown, Hollywood, and Westwood/Century City)."

What excites us: A 405 over the hill solution, a Ventura Blvd line (freaking out those "south of the boulevard") and access to Venice, Silver Lake and Glendale.

What we desire: a line from NoHo or Universal towards Pasadena via Burbank and Glendale on the Valley side.
