    I’m sure for those using Rail this is great, but Metro needs to do something about the silver Line. Only running once an hour on game days kills any interest in ridership. I forgot to look at the schedule before we got to artesia transit station, we had missed the last bus by 15 mins and had a 45 min wait for the next. Made Driving the only feasible option, despite being twice the cost for parking.

    “The city and BHUSD support the Westside Subway Extension—two stations along the $5.3-billion project would be built within the city limits—but oppose Metro’s current alignment under the campus because it would severely restrict the district’s ability to modernize and expand as required by a voter-approved bond measure.”

    From The Patch article linked to above. Far more than student safety, this seems like the real reason that BH has been against the subway going under the school. Why all the school hysteria? Perhaps they think that re-routing a subway just so they can build an underground parking garage doesn’t have the same political appeal as talking about explosions?
