A series of public meetings about the Crenshaw Corridor (you know, a train from Wilshire Blvd. to LAX) have ended, but there still plenty of planning (and dreaming) to be had for public transit in the Los Angeles region. From bicycling to bus lanes to subways, here's a wrap-up of meetings that remain this month.

Bus Lanes on Wilshire
Will buses whisk through the busiest street out there on dedicated bus lanes? Well, that is within the city of Los Angeles. Beverly Hills and Santa Monica are a big no on this idea. Two more meetings, including one tonight, are left for this project. The other is next Tuesday. More info here.

Rosa Parks Station
Next to the 7th/Metro, the Rosa Parks station, where the Green and Blue lines intersect, is the second busiest in Metro's rail system. One meeting will take place next Wednesday. More info here.

Harbor Transit Corridor
How about a train trip from downtown, b-lining through the Southbay and over to Long Beach sound? Metro owns a lengthy right-of-way and is exploring the possibilities. A series of five meetings will begin on Monday, October 19th. More info here.

Bicycle Draft Master Plan
Run by LADOT, the city will come back to cyclists seeking for feedback on the controversial master plan. The first of four meetings is on Thursday, October 22nd. More info here.

Westside Subway
Also on the 22nd, Metro will begin their latest set of public meetings about the Westside Subway project. "We want you to 'roll-up-your-sleeves' and engage with us to discuss station locations and entrances, easy connections to and from the stations, and other issues," an e-mail about the project reads.
