    Default LAX Will Build Long Overdue People Mover

    The Los Angeles’ Metro system’s Green Line was originally supposed to extend to LAX, but that never happened due to disagreements about the location of the airport station and concerns that the elevated rail line would interfere with airport operations.


    However, the proposed “People Mover” rail line that would link three of LAX’s terminals would also extend to a Metro rail station at 96th Street and Aviation Boulevard, about ten minutes from the airport. The People Mover also would have a station at planned rental-car and taxi/shuttle hubs.


    The Los Angeles City Council has approved $5 billion in spending to build the new rail link.
    By connecting to the Metro’s Crenshaw Line, now under construction, LAX travellers would be able to reach downtown Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Pasadena, and other communities now linked by Metro rail.

    Uh-huh, as one that's lived through various rail line plans to LAX - including the Green Line-"Train To No Where" - I'll believe it when the "people mover" gets it's first person to a terminal.
    Keep'em Flying
