Metro releases final environmental study for Westside Subway Extension | The Source

For Century City, the station is proposed for Constellation Blvd - so the lawsuits from the BHUSD are a-comin'.

For the Westwood/UCLA - the stop is proposed for Wilshire & Westwood.

Final stop is the VA Hospital. Personally, I think Bundy is a much better choice for an interim terminal but that's just me.

Why don't then put the last stop in DT Santa Monica?

It would make sense to extend it to there.

I think that's the goal of the Expo line.

Two questions:
1. Is there a Wilshire/Beverly stop?
2. Is this line even necessary with the Expo Line planned to go to West LA?

Wilshire/Rodeo it looks like. Pretty much the same thing.
The wilshire corridor is the main artery connecting east to west and is so congested I cant see any reason not to build this extension.

They are supposed to extend the "Subway to the Sea" all the way to downtown Santa Monica but it will be done in a later phase........

That's even worse. Escalators coming out of the ground next to all those shops. At least Beverly Dr. is more ho-hum. It would have made more sense there. I can't believe that, in my life, I might see a subway going through Beverly Hills. It's mind boggling. Mind you, I don't care, but it is surreal.

The entrance won't be located on Rodeo, it's currently planned to be on Wilshire and Reeves. The station will be called Wilshire/Rodeo for better visibility and recognition.

Because Metro is being cheap. We also aren't getting the Pink Line through West Hollywood to connect the red line to the purple at Hollywood/Highland. That line makes so much sense it's ridiculous. WeHo actually wants it too!

Thus we have to hope for, one day, the Crenshaw line being extended to Hollywood/Highland through West Hollywood before any of this makes sense. The proposed Crenshaw extension would connect with the Green, Blue, Expo, Purple and Red. And give West Hollywood rail service. Basically a one seat ride from LAX to Hollywood.
