The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
Neal Broverman at LA Observed Curbed LA reports that despite rumors, the Expo Line testing is continuing more or less on schedule. The line is expected to open to the La Cienega station later this year or early next. The BuildExpo website says that the Culver City station will open "in 2012."
Says Gabriela Collins of the Expo Construction Authority in the LA Observed story:
"Train testing is now underway... from downtown Los Angeles to La Cienega. Once testing is completed, which is anticipated in the next several weeks, the system will be turned over to Metro for pre-revenue operations. Once Metro determines that the system is safe to operate, the line will open to the public. Opening to La Cienega is still scheduled for later this year or early next year depending on how much time Metro needs for operator training and if any items need to be adjusted based on pre-revenue operations."
