The Westside Subway Extension Project team is currently evaluating
five different alternatives for extending transit service to West Los
Angeles. All of the alternatives currently have a common subway segment
on Wilshire Boulevard extending to Westwood/UCLA. One alternative also
extends to Westwood/VA Hospital, one alternative extends to Santa
Monica, one alternative includes the extension to Westwood/VA Hospital
and adds a possible branch through West Hollywood, and one alternative
includes both the extension into Santa Monica and the possible branch
through West Hollywood. As part of the environmental review process,
the project team must also evaluate a No-Build Alternative and a
Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Alternative. The agency’s Board
will consider staff recommendations in the fall.
