LA Metro Officials Mulling Possible New Names for Lines

(KNX 1070) - Starting early next year,  some Metro Lines could get new names just as the transit system starts getting a lot bigger.

With a bunch of new rail lines and bus lines in the works, Metro officials think this is the perfect time to think about changing names. 

For instance, the Blue Line could become the No. 1 line or the A-line.  It would still be blue on a transit map although the No. 1 or letter A would also be there.

KNX reporter Pete Demetriou:

The Crenshaw Line is nearing completion and the Regional Connector is being built. Metro plans to do extensive work on the Blue Line, called the New Blue Improvements project, starting in January.

 Metro reps hope the Board will authorize staff to start working on a plan so they can present the board with a recommendation by early December.
