New Unofficial Metro Projects Progress Video

8:58 AM PDT on April 28, 2021

Some readers will recall Nick Andert's April 2020 unofficial video telling about Metro's growing rail and BRT networks. This week Andert is back with a 12-minute 2021 Update on LA Metro Projects. Andert states that the new video is the first of three; subsequent videos will focus on the planned Sepulveda Transit project and possible federal infrastructure investments in L.A. County.

The zippy and informative new video give great updates on Metro's under-construction projects:

    • Crenshaw/LAX and the Airport Metro Connector
    • Downtown L.A.'s Regional Connector
    • Westside Purple Line Extensions segments 1, 2, and 3
    • Foothill Gold Line Extension phase 2B

Then the video touches on projects that Metro expects to get underway fairly soon:

    • East San Fernando Valley rail
    • Eastside Gold Line Extension
    • West Santa Ana Branch rail
    • Torrance Green Line Extension
    • Crenshaw North Extension
    • North Hollywood to Pasadena Bus Rapid transit (BRT)

If you're interested in getting more familiar with Metro's growing rail/BRT system, this video is worth a dozen minutes of your time.
