Think Big, Think Long-Term

Daily News explores the varying opinions on L.A.’s transit efforts and explains why we must have courage.

There is a dichotomy within the population of Los Angeles: those who laud the recent and continued expansion of the light rail and commuter trains and those who opine these same systems as wastes of tax-payer’s money. The latter segment explains that the subway system is too expensive, impractical, and doesn't go where most people want to go. They want buses--and many more of them. The other half feels the subway system has exceeded expectations and is proving much less expensive, per mile, than the current bus system. Richard Nemec explains that it is a combination of the two that will ultimately transform Los Angeles into the epitome of the signature city for the 21st century.
