More momentum being generated in the push to expand the MTA's rail network:Newly elected
11th District Concilmember Bill Rosendahl was interviewed by KPCC's Kitty Felde on today's "Talk of the City" (click here
to listen), and expressed in no uncertain terms his intention to champion an extension of the proposed Expo Line
out to the beach.
He also declared his support for extending the Red Line to Santa Monica, as well as adding a Green Line spur that would travel northward to LAX, and then on to Santa Monica. According to Mr. Rosendahl, he has already discussed these plans with Rep. Waxman and Supervisor Yaroslavsky, both of whom responded positively.

is run by the Transit Coalition
, and features news, links, transportation plans and other stuff that transit geeks love to read. Check it out, if that's your bag.
