What Los Angeles Metro could look like in 10 years if May Villaraigosa's 30/10 Plan Moves Foreward.

Funding is already in-place for all of these projects, but the money flows-in from Measure R funds over the next 30 years. The Mayor's idea is to ask Washington to fund a loan against the future Measure  R income, to allow all of this work to be completed within 10 years.

It's a brilliant idea. The LA Metro region certainly needs this much relief from traffic congestion as soon as possible. With all this in-place LA could quickly become almost as non car-dependent as New York. There would be a major rail or BRT stop within a 1 mile walk of a huge percentage of the region's population.
