Los Angeles,

Finally, we’re getting a rail line to our airport.

Yesterday, the MTA board, of which I’m Vice Chair, approved building a train to the plane at LAX, a crucial step to building the world-class airport and world-class transit system that our world-class city deserves.

On July 1, I will become the Chair of MTA. It will be my priority to see that this project is completed in a timely and efficient manner so travelers can avoid the freeway — especially the 405. And that eases traffic for all of us.

Are you looking forward to riding the rail to the airport? Let us know.

Thanks for believing in our city. Together, we’re getting it done.
