Invest in growth

July 14, 2008

Re "They're trading time for money," July 8

Although the growth in ridership on Los Angeles' subways and light rail has been smaller in numbers than the increase in bus boardings, the growth in rail ridership is proportionally greater.

While bus boardings are up 12.5% since January, the Blue Line and the Red Line have seen 14% increases, and Gold Line ridership is up 22%.

Metro should invest where the growth is -- subways and light rail.
