  1. It’s good that they will be expanding Pico Station, but it doesn’t seem like it will really be enough to handle a large percentage of people going to the event. For comparison, consider the Kenmore Sq station on the Green Line in Boston, which is right next to Fenway Park. The need for grade separation at Pico, and probably Venice, is only going to become more apparent…

  2. Soem of us are curious if Megabus learned lessons from their failed venture in this market a few years ago and will address them w/their return. Service quality/reliability plus marketing were partly why it flopped before. Also some questioned the routes they ran.

  3. Metro needs to start planning a trench-station, with the trench continuing south to or even beyond the Expo/Blue split, so that patrons can head to and from Pico/Chick Hearn and access both direction of trains.  
    This would also solve some of the conflicts along Flower.
