Letters: Who benefits from the Expo Line?

May 03, 2012

Re "Westside cities have big bets riding on Expo Line's success," April 28

The Expo Line light rail will not improve traffic congestion much, even though it was advertised as a relief for gridlock.

It will, however, lead to increased business development, which will increase traffic congestion around the train stations. And as this development occurs, current residents will likely be priced out when rents rise. Who is this benefiting for all the expense?
