Wow! LA Metro’s proposed transit system is amazing – check out this map!
We all know that LA County once had one of the world’s most extensive rail transit systems – shutdown by automobile interests, as legend has it.
Well, it is back to the future in November 2016 if voters get a chance to approve a ballot measure that looks like Metro’s Draft Expenditure Plan! (see below)
As we have said before, the proposed investment in new, extended or enhanced rail transit system in the Metro Draft Plan is nothing short of incredible!
And there is more: about 6% of the measure, maybe more, will be spent improving pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure. Other funds will help keep fares low and ensure State of Good Repair for both our highway and transit systems.
