A state senate bill was just introduced to expedite a people mover to downtown Inglewood:

SB 789 streamlines the California Environmental Quality Act, known as CEQA, for the Inglewood sports and entertainment project, expedites the Inglewood people-mover project from LA Metro to downtown Inglewood, and preserves existing housing for long-time community members in the Inglewood development areas. This bill was introduced today on the Assembly Floor, where it will be voted on in Assembly policy committee next week.

^ Wow, this is actually being seriously considered? I like this idea a lot... certainly much easier than branching off the Crenshaw Line.

That people mover would be different than the LAX people mover, correct? Connecting to Downtown Inglewood station? I have no problem with that.

Edit: that's the other issue with the idea of extending the LAX APM. LAWA, the funder/operator, would have no vested interest in that extension and it would cost them money.

They *should* have a vested interest in it because the traffic generated by Hollywood Park could make the airport, which is already quite inaccessible, even more so. Nothing exists in a vacuum.

LAX is experiencing record passenger volume every year so it's clearly not inaccessible. People are not happy accessing it (for good reason), but an Inglewood people mover won't change that, and LAWA is unlikely to be convinced that it is a material interest to them o be the one to provide this service.
