Thank you to everyone who came out to Tuesday evening’s Streetcar Community Update! Community members were able to get detailed information on the alternative selection process, and they were able to provide their input as Metro works toward selecting a Locally Preferred Alternative alignment. We had an excellent turnout to the event, and we sincerely appreciate your thoughtful questions and comments.

Keep up with the streetcar Alternatives Analysis process at Metro’s Streetcar Page, at LASI’s Facebook and Twitter pages, or right here!

Thanks again,

The Streetcar Team

Thanks to everyone for coming out and showing your support for the Downtown Los Angeles Streetcar System! The Environmental Scoping Meeting was well attended and we received a bunch of public comments. These comments will help define and select the Locally Preferred Alternative (“LPA”) that will be further studied in the environmental review process. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for future updates.
