Its infuriating that Metro takes the cheap way out of things but not always the easiest.

We all see that Metro is infatuated with light rail. FINE. Go the cheap and easy way of doing what was done with the blue line in Long Beach. We have plenty of extra wide avenues and boulevards, why not throw light rail down the center of those on the cheap and give signal prioritzation ?

Hawthorne blvd is soooo wide, its literally, at most points, 4 lanes wide on both sides WITH PARKING IN THE CENTER OF IT ????? rip up the parking, plop down some light rail and call it a day. There are other streets just as wide and just as busy that can be done the same way. With Signal priortization ofcourse.
