Alt H wouldn’t necessarily require waiting for the subway to be built because it would pay for the Extension. Expect SELA to be furious about that.

Orange Co. streetcar

We took this trip to Garden Grove
It smelled like Lou-dog inside the streetcar.

OCTA taps Siemens for eight streetcars


The S70 model streetcars will operate on the future Orange County Streetcar line.

"The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) on Monday approved a $51.5 million contract to acquire eight S70 model streetcars from Siemens Industries Inc.

The units will be used on the future 4.1-mile Orange County Streetcar line, which will run from Santa Ana to Garden Grove, California. Six vehicles will operate on the system at a time, with two spare cars to be used as needed, OCTA officials said in a press release..."

Has anyone seen MoveLA's Vision 2020 strawman? It's a complete joke in my opinion, I would be a HARD NO on this proposition. Only 10% of the revenue would go to Metrolink for the first 20 years, with the remaining going mostly to cars and trucks. Really disappointing. No thanks Denny.

Has MoveLA ever even enacted any meaningful legislation?
