It is quite obvious that we are suffering the effects of gridlock on our freeways and surface streets. The very costly Metro Rail and light-rail concepts, as proposed by the RTD and the county Transportation Commission, will never provide the necessary transit system so badly needed to service this horrendous gridlock. It is a hub-and-spoke route configuration that directs all moving transit units through a central point, a very inefficient design concept. The airlines and the BART system are plagued with the effect of this concept. All moving activities come to a standstill (witnessed). The above system is archaic and doesn't belong in our time-frame era of technological advancement.
However, at this time, I would like to present an informative note. There has been a new, modern, 21st-Century design and concept transit system designed and engineered. It will serve all of Los Angeles and Orange counties effectively and efficiently.
This system is routed along the freeway embankments. The track is elevated; the units operate in a hanging position and run on rubber-tired wheels. Stations are 4 to 5 miles apart, and the stations are serviced with a complemented minibus system (i.e., to 25 square miles per station). The minibuses will also service the local sector area to provide mobility within the area. Downtown L.A. has three sector stations. No cars will be allowed in the downtown central area. Commuters from the station will be delivered to their job streets and business activities. This will be in effect during peak time only.
