A light rail train stops at a Metro station in Los Angeles, California.
Los Angeles is in the middle of planning and building a rapid-transit network, including a subway extension, a light rail line down Exposition, and an extension of the Gold Line. Now add to the pot the Crenshaw line. The feds have approved financing of $540 million, which will go a long way to bridging the gap between the Expo Line and the area just east of LAX. Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas talks about the line, how long it will take to build, and what it will mean to his constituents.
