Metro Board Approves New Station to Bring People Into LAX

Metro's Board of Directors has taken an important step toward correcting the "historic mistake" (to use the words of LA Mayor Eric Garcetti) of terminating the Green Line 2 miles short of LAX: This Thursday the board unanimously approved a new Crenshaw light rail line station at Aviation Boulevard and 96th Street, where airport-bound passengers can check in for their flights before getting on a People Mover for a ride to terminals at LAX. While the Measure R sales tax has funded the planning of this station, it will not fund construction; Metro needs to ID a new source of funding to build it. The new station would also serve some Green Line trains. Many airports -- including those in San Francisco and Chicago -- use People Movers to transport passengers from rail lines into their terminals.
