Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: A coalition of environmental groups and the Bus Riders Union protested outside Metro headquarters on Saturday.  The message: programs and projects that promote car drivership, such as the 710 tunnel project damage the environment and expansion of the bus system can save it.  Makes sense.  The Times has more.

    RE: Expo Line

    Per the Source:

    Hi everyone;
    I’ve had to “not approve” a couple of comments that say this is the beginning of pre-revenue testing/service. It’s not. It’s a ramping up of the testing, as we stated. I’ll let everyone know when we know more about an opening date.
