DISCUSSION
Background
A t the June 2013 Board meeting, staf f was directed to incl ude the Through ITF
A l ternative ( A l ternative B) in the environmental review phase. A t the October 2013
Board meeting, staf f presented the Technical Ref inement of A l ternatives report and
recommended six al ternatives be advanced to the environmental review phase. With
the approved set of al ternatives, staf f f rom Metro and LA WA met in November 2013
with representatives f rom the Federal A viation A dministration ( FA A ) and the Federal
Transit A dministration ( FTA ) to discuss the start of the environmental review process f or
the A MC proj ect. During this meeting, al l agencies invol ved agreed that Metro woul d
l ead the State environmental review process required by the Cal if ornia Environmental
Q ual ity A ct ( CEQ A ) f or the Light Rail Transit ( LRT) al ternatives and that LA WA woul d
l ead the CEQ A process f or the A utomated Peopl e Mover ( A PM) al ternatives.
In January 2014, prior to starting the CEQ A process, staf f returned to the Board and
recommended that A l ternatives C2, C3, and C4 be el iminated f rom f urther
consideration. During the January Board meeting, LA WA 's Ex ecutive Director
conf irmed the A irport's commitment to buil d an A PM system as part of the ground
transportation program at LA X. The Board approved el iminating these three
A l ternatives, but directed the CEO to provide a written report that f urther eval uated
A l ternatives C3 and C4.
During the initial pl anning f or the written report, staf f identif ied the need to update
certain inf ormation f rom the October 2013 Technical Ref inement Study, and ex panded
the suppl emental anal ysis to al so incl ude the al ternatives recommended f or the
environmental review phase. A s ridership was absent f rom the October 2013 Technical
Ref inement Study, staf f worked cl osel y with LA WA to conf irm the assumptions and
methodol ogy f or the ridership model in order to devel op updated ridership estimates f or
al l al ternatives eval uated in the Suppl emental A nal ysis Report. For the purposes of the
A irport Metro Connector

the Crenshaw/LAX EIS/EIR to pro vide a co nso lidated bus- rail interf ace at this statio n.
Ho wever, f o llo wing the release o f the Octo ber 2013 Technical Ref inement Study, LAWA
inf o rmed staf f that the pref erred alig nment f o r the APM is no w being co nsidered j ust
no rth o f 9 6 th Street. Metro staf f was inf o rmed that the chang e in alig nment was
necessary to allo w f o r f uture ro adway impro vements alo ng bo th 9 8 th and 9 6 th Streets,
including extending bo th ro adways east acro ss Aviatio n Bo ulevard to co nnect with the
f uture Co nRAC site.
Altho ug h Alternative A3 co nnects the APM at the f uture Aviatio n/Century statio n, this
alig nment pro vides Metro Rail passeng ers with a less direct co nnectio n to the CTA as it
wo uld req uire riders to travel thro ug h the Co nRAC prio r to accessing the CTA.
Furthermo re, the co mpletio n o f Alternative A3 is co nting ent upo n LAWA's
implementatio n o f the Co nRAC pro g ram.
Sho uld Alternatives Al o r A3 be selected as LAWA's pref erred APM alternative, LAWA
wo uld lead the preparatio n o f the EIR f o r the APM system and Metro wo uld co o rdinate
with LAWA o n the desig n and co nstructio n o f the co nnectio n at the Aviatio n/Century
statio n. Metro and LAWA have previo usly f unded mo dif icatio ns to the Aviatio n/Century
statio n in o rder to no t preclude ro adway impro vements and a po tential co nnectio n to an
APM statio n. The AMC pro j ect pro vided the f unding f o r the Bo ard appro ved
mo dif icatio ns af f iliated with the APM co nnectio n and, at the Bo ard's directio n, wo uld
pro vide additio nal f unding , as appro priate, to acco mmo date f urther chang es to the
Aviatio n/Century statio n as well as the co nstructio n o f the actual co nnectio n. All
mo dif icatio ns related to the co nnectio n with LAWA's APM system wo uld co ntinue to be
co o rdinated with the Crenshaw/LAX pro j ect team.
Alternatives Reco mmended f o r Eliminatio n f ro m Further Analysis
The alternatives co nnecting at the ITF o r CTA (B and C1, respectively) do no t pro vide
sig nif icantly g reater ridership to o f f set their much hig her capital co st. Bo th alternatives
wo uld have a neg ative impact o n o verall Metro ridership, as the rero uting o f transit
service f ro m Aviatio n Bo ulevard wo uld add travel time and delay to the maj o rity o f Metro
passeng ers passing thro ug h the airpo rt area o n these lines, but are no t destined f o r the
airpo rt. Fo r airpo rt bo und passeng ers, the travel time to the CTA is better f o r Alternative
A2 than f o r Alternatives B and C1, even tho ug h Alternatives B and C1 lo cate the LRT
statio n clo ser to the CTA o r actually in the CTA, respectively. The dif f erence is due to
g reater walking distances between the Metro Rail Statio n and the ITF APM statio n f o r
Alternatives B and C1.
Other challeng es f acing Alternatives B and C1 include capacity co nstraints asso ciated
with o perating multiple rail lines thro ug h clo sely spaced railro ad j unctio ns and limited
capacity at certain terminal statio ns. Altho ug h these co nstraints do no t make the
alternatives inf easible, they do present limitatio ns in terms o f increasing the f req uency
o f rail service in the f uture as well as acco mmo dating f uture expansio n o f the Metro Rail
system.
