Airport Update September 2014

Forty years ago LAX was supposed to have a train called the MTA Green Line access the airport. It stopped a couple miles short and people take a connecting bus from the nearest station at Imperial and Aviation. That lapse has been the butt of jokes for almost 40 years. Our current elected officials have stated we will not fail this time.

For several decades my wife, Nan, when asked if a connection would be made to LAX, would quip, “Of course, and it will look just like a great big blue bus.” In the last decade voters authorized a $100M bond to extend the train. Surely it would happen soon, right? Well, not quite…


Airport Update - June 2014

LAX is big business. The budget for LAX operation being approved is over a $Billion and because it is the port of entry for both people and cargo it represents a major impact on our overall regional economy.

Alliance for a Regional Solution to Airport Congestion (ARSAC) advocates for network of airports for two reasons: 1) the present concentration into one location, LAX, results in substantial drives through heavy traffic for most residents not near LAX and 2) to avoid economic meltdown to our entire economy from any man made or natural disaster at LAX because there is not backup contingency.

We have a real target for implementing LAX improvements—the 2024 Olympics—and we must take advantage of this or traffic around LAX will continue to be bad and will not improve. All agree that LAX must be modernized and needs urgent, major repairs. Los Angeles World Airports has begun a publicity campaign, “LAX is happening” so that travelers and visitors to LAX will accept the major delays and annoyances of the on-going construction. LAX Central Terminal Area visitors will continue to find it difficult to disembark into the “same old design.” LAWA’s LAX plans are incomplete and do little to mitigate the economic risks. Integrated modal improvements and roadway improvements are stalled.


Airport Update -February 2014

Yet another active month of airport affairs for Southern California. It's nice to see at least someone is preparing for Regionalism. Burbank Bob Hope Airport hasn't increased passenger numbers lately, but is invoking several improvements which will put Bob Hope in a good future position. Not only are they increasing and building new, improved terminal flow, but they are also improving transportation access with a metro link stop adjacent to the airport along with improved parking and van/bus/taxi access.

Los Angeles World Airport, LAWA, can't be accused of the same. There has been NO movement to resolve getting a train into LAX, nor anything to get the people mover system designed nor planning the Consolidated Rental Car System. Local vehicle traffic flow is equally stagnant.

LAWA reported another month of increased concentration of passenger traffic at LAX with a corresponding reduction at the other LAWA owned commercial airport, Ontario. LAWA is no longer even pretending they have a plan for commercial air service in Palmdale.

LAWA is continues as the full employment program for lawyers.
