the purple, brown, and pink will definitely be the most useful. man, what a city LA would be with that system. we would have good freeways and a fantastic metro. then lets see what NYers would say about that. they say our sprawl is impossible to cure and that nothing is connected. well, here ya go. in about 50 years i bet, hopefully less, all of that will be completed.

The Gold Line Rail way (Chatsworth to Pasadena) will NEVER happen. There is no way the city planning commission will be able to afford to get the property along Ventura Blvd even with imminent domain. Its been a terrible fight for years just to widen the 101 FWY in this area and residents (with big $$) fighting a huge battle and winning everytime.

I'd be very surprised if that current proposed route happens within the next 20 years.

I like the connections at the Chattsworth station. We need more connections between the suburbs and the urban areas. Overall, I'm always in favor of more rail.

Here for 2 months now. One day I decided to see what the system was about. Had no idea how large it is and was impressed. Wish there were future plans for the west side.

One thing I would like to see is one coordinated system for all the individual public transportation in Southern California. For example, there is Metro, Blue Bus, and Gardena - at least those are the ones I am familiar with. The metro website can incorporate all those in the trip planner but that trip planner is 1980s technology (that's another complaint). Google is pretty good but it doesn't incorporate all the different bus lines (Gardena for example - by the way I notified Google about that and they said they'd take care of it.)

Also, the California High Speed Train, once completed, will connect downtown LA to downtown San Francisco in 2 hours 38 minutes. LA to San Diego.....1 hour 18 minutes.

Feds give California nearly $1 billion for high-speed rail and related train projects | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times
