Maybe. Possibly.

Says here that Metro is officially in pre-revenue service, which is the final stage before it's open to the public.

This is more like Phase 1A as it's only going to La Cienega since the Culver City stop still isn't quite done yet.

A year and change late but better late than never.

And even though they're saying 2015 for service to Santa Monica, I'd add another year to that.

Six years ago now, I bought my place near the Expo Line because I wanted to be on the light-rail system. At the time, they were thinking it would open in early 2010. I can't believe that it might actually open soon.

I'm pretty sure that the day it opens, an earthquake, tsunami or Godzilla are going to come and destroy it.

Yep, about time. The Gold Line Extension (to East LA) was built on time (i believe). So MAYBE, Expo Line Phase II can make to the station on time (and open in 2015).

They have really cleared the path for the phase II line. I would think this time around, they will be more seasoned and make it flow fast. It would be cool if they came in ahead of schedule. Many parts I've looked at are easily accessible and out of the way of all vehicle & pedestrian traffic.

How close will it go to Westwood, for UCLA students? Sad to say, there's still no service to LAX. Still need to take the Green Line and then a bus. Only airport adjacent to public transit (non-bus) is still Burbank, which is losing American Airlines?

It will stop on Westwood Blvd. between Pico and National. Which isn't that close to UCLA but that's the closest it will get to UCLA.

No rail service to UCLA until the "subway to the sea" reaches Wilshire & Westwood. So let's not hold our breath.

But the EXPO Line WILL finally introduce rail service to USC (one of the largest private employers in LA County).
