Light Rail in Los Angeles
Around Town: The future could be L.A.'s legacy of light rail
Some thoughts on the 710 connection and the need for light rail by
Imagine this: It is January 2023. Your kids (or grandkids) grab a light rail at the entrance to the 2 Freeway on Foothill Boulevard, or take the escalator down to the light rail stop on the 210 at Memorial Park. From there, they go to the Claremont Colleges, Caltech, Cal State Los Angeles, UCLA, USC or the local airports, Burbank and LAX.
The light rail route would use the center dividers of existing freeways.
Want to grab a bite at L.A. Live? You could take the light rail.
Want to go to the beach? No more LCF beach bus, your kids grab the light rail from La Cañada to the beaches of their choice.
Flying to London? Take the Gold line to the airport.
Cocktails? Connect with the light rail to Musso & Frank Grill.
