Plan Recommendations: Public Transit
Plan Recommendations: Highway

Part 4 - Video Transcript

Now I’m gonna talk about some of the recommendations from the plan.  First off, talking about public transit; the plan recommends funding first of all for local bus.  The plan recommends maintaining the extensive system of over 2,000 Cleanfield buses as well as efficiently improving service through larger buses that carry more riders.

The plan also recommends funding for a variety of transit corridors.  First off, the East Side Go Line Extension which is currently under construction from down town to East L.A. and due to open in 2009.  The plan also recommends funding for the Expo Phase I from down town to Culver City due to open in 2010 as well as Expo Phase II from Culver City to Santa Monica.  The plan is also recommending a transit corridor in the Crenshaw corridor from the mid-city area south along Crenshaw Boulevard connecting with the green line.

In the San Fernando Valley, the plan recommends a northern extension of the existing orange line up to Chatsworth Metro Link station as well as bus speed improvements along various other north-south corridors.  And the plan recommends continued funding for Metro Link service and the plan document also lists other improvements as well.

Now I’m going to talk about the long range plan highway recommendations and the strategy of the long range plan is to fill in the gaps in the car pooling system as well as to improve traffic choke points.  Examples of some of the car pooling projects recommended in the plan for funding include Route 60 and Interstate 10 connecting to San Gabriel Valley with the Inland Empire as well as car pool lanes on the 405 connecting the west side with the San Fernando Valley.  Car pool lanes are also recommended on Interstate 5 connecting the San Fernando Valley with North County as well as improving a bottle neck on I-5 adding mix flow lanes as well as car pool lanes and thereby having a smoother transition between traffic on I-5 between Los Angeles and Orange County.

Now traffic accidents also account for almost half of congestion and Metro recommends funding for the Freeway Service Patrol which tows vehicles, and even big rigs, away from accidents thereby getting back to the regular flow of traffic as soon as possible.
