LA Metro

LOS ANGELES — The LA Metro transit system has unveiled six options for a proposed rail line linking the San Fernando Valley and LA’s Westside in or near the Sepulveda Pass route of Interstate 405, with options including above- or below-ground routes, light rail, heavy rail, and a monorail.

The plans were released as Metro begins a series of public meetings on the proposals. Construction is currently slated to be completed by 2033, but Los Angeles mayor Eric Garsetti, chairman of Metro’s board, would like to see completion for the 2028 Olympics.

All the potential routes are planned to initially connect to existing Metro rail service on the Westside, with eventual extension to LA International Airport.

A presentation on the various plans is available on the LA Metro website. The next meeting on the proposals is Tuesday, June 12, at the Proud Bird restaurant near LA International Airport. A webcast of that meeting is scheduled to be available here.
