Want a subway down Wilshire? Pencil this in.
Maybe you want the 'Subway to the Sea' to go to WeHo instead of down Wilshire Blvd. through Beverly Hills. Perhaps you are evil and think nothing should be done at all letting traffic roll as it sort of doesn't do anyway. No matter what vision, now is the time to chime in like the backseat driver you are at some public meetings or via the written word.
Wad at MetroRiderLA has the low-down:
By law Metro has to consider from several alternative modes in order to receive funding. These can include, subway, bus-only lanes, subway, surface light rail, subway, aerial light rail, subway, elevated Purple Line extension, subway, the do-nothing alternative or subway. Metro set up a web site for this study. The study area boundaries are the subway stations at Hollywood/Highland and Wilshire/Western to the east, Pico Boulevard to the south, the sea to the west, and more or less the Santa Monica Mountains to the north.
