The Eco-Rapid Transit joint powers authority was created to link economic development and transportation along a 40-mile corridor from Artesia in southeast LA County northwest to the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, and to be a catalyst for transportation improvements including a 20-mile light rail line from Artesia to Union Station in downtown LA. This project, the West Santa Ana Branch Corridor, would stop in nearly a dozen cities and is projected to carry 70,000 riders—about the same as the Blue Line, the second-busiest light rail line in the US. Studies of the line were funded by Measure R. Eco-Rapid Transit is staging a Transportation Summit on Nov. 18 in Artesia at the Portuguese Hall. More information here.
