Fred Camino at MetroRiderLA reminds us that time is running out to comment on Metro’s plans for the future.
This March Metro asked you to share with them what you Imagine for L.A.’s transportation future. In two days however, the 45-day public comment period will come to a close, meaning you’d better act fast if you want your input on the Long Range Transportation Plan to have an impact.
Metro’s Long Range plan only addresses mobility through the year 2030. Is that enough? Do you think they should be looking at a much bigger picture? You have until tomorrow to let them know.
Tell you what, I’ll make it easy for you. Copy & paste the following and email it to Metro:
Your Long Range Transportation Plan is not enough. The citizens of Los Angeles deserve a world-class transit system that is built on a vision for the future. We want a real map that we can look to as a blueprint for how our great-grandchildren will travel. We want subways to the Westside, the Eastside, the Valley, the beaches. We want a system that runs 24 hours a day with state of the art security. We want trains that run every 10 minutes. We want rail to Dodger Stadium. Century City. LAX. Van Nuys. Burbank. We want seamless integration with Metrolink, Downtown streetcars, and high speed rail to San Francisco, Las Vegas, and San Diego. We want a map that will give us hope, and a timetable that will keep our government honest. We want them to figure out how to pay for it all, because that’s why we elected them. We want a real map, and we want it now.
