LACMTA to host community meetings on LAX rail link study


The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) will host an open house Feb. 29 and hold two community meetings in March to inform the public about an ongoing study of options to connect the agency’s growing rail system to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The study’s focus is a four-square-mile area bounded by La Cienega Boulevard on the east, Manchester Avenue to the north, Imperial Highway to the south and LAX airport terminals on the west, LACMTA officials said in a prepared statement.

Alternatives under consideration include light-rail transit, an automated people mover system and bus rapid transit, they said.
