Last month, the Subway Toward the Sea came a bit closer to becoming a reality. The cause for celebration arrived in the form of an appeals court ruling upholding the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the Purple Line Extension.
This is a true story. It's about the way many people get around Los Angeles and how more of us should navigate the City of Angels. Native Angelenos, new arrivals, older transplants like me, tourists and everyone in between.
For me, leaving LA doesn't mean losing touch with the progress of America Fast Forward. In fact, I find these regular outings give me some helpful perspective on what Angelenos are trying to achieve transit-wise.
While it is unfortunate that the Beverly Hills City Council has now come out against the Constellation station location, we should remember that this was once a community that opposed the very idea of a subway.
