As the congestion in Los Angeles increases, the city’s efforts to make transportation easier could be put to the test. This was a decision made on January 21, 2014, costing us 2,058 billion dollars for this Transit Project.

This new way of transportation would be set to travel Crenshaw/LAX. There would be 8 transit stations in route: Exposition/Crenshaw, Martin Luther King Jr., Leimert Park, Hyde Park, Fairview heights, Downtown Inglewood, Westchester/ Veterans, and Aviation/ Century.

This transportation would have its setbacks, Metro.net states that,“In addition to the alternative transportation option to congested roadways, the project will also provide significant environmental benefits, economic development and employment opportunities throughout Los Angeles County.” If more jobs are to be made, then that would make the hunt to find a job less challenging for the area of Los Angeles.

Some people assume that the plan would definitely have its pros and cons, as lacurbed.com may conclude, “the plan is aimed at making the streets safer and more inviting to people on foot and on bikes by adding street improvements like at least one scramble crosswalk.”

How might you think Crenshaw will be effected if a transportation (Metro) train was built? What makes the decision good or bad? Traffic issues might be a problem as Tierra Jones states, “It might be busier then it is already.” Although, because less people would be walking and/or riding bikes, that would make the streets more enjoyable and safer. This issue would be great for travelers. “It will be good decision, it would be less traffic and nobody will have that fear in their heart of missing their flight due to traffic,” Kiaysha Cooper says.

We shall see what the future holds and how this new transportation would change the world!
