  • “Two more subway plans include variations of the Wilshire Boulevard routes but also would involve a second train coming from the Red Line at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue and zipping below Santa Monica Boulevard to serve West Hollywood. The lines would converge on Wilshire Boulevard and head to the sea.”

    I was very glad to read this. We need both the Santa Monica and Wilshire Blvd. lines and I’m glad that 2 out of 4 proposals have both lines. Granted, Wilshire is the higher priority, but we need BOTH.

    I will pay any reasonable increase in fares, fees and taxes in order to pay for the world class transit system Los Angeles deserves and needs in order to remain economically and environmentally sustainable.
