WHY:                    The completion of light rail service in Santa Monica in early 2016 will have significant impact on public transportation to and from Santa Monica. The final Phase 2 expansion will bring rail from the fringes of the BBB service area into its center. Of the seven new rail stations that will open in Phase 2, three are within the City of Santa Monica city limits, including the western terminus for the line. Projected weekday ridership for the Exposition Line is 64,000 boardings per weekday as of 2030.
