California High Speed Rail Authority Board approved $423 million in funding for Los Angeles Metrolink Union Station project, which will allow trains to enter/exit Union Station from both the north and south. That will increase the station’s rail capacity, cut down on travel time for Metrolink and Amtrak trains and reduce idling time for trains. California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), also announced that it has awarded $222 million in grants for transformative transit and rail projects in Los Angeles County. The money will be used to improve service on Metrolink Antelope Valley, acquire 30 zero emission buses for muni operators, and help fund a people mover in Inglewood that is planned to run between the Crenshaw/LAX Line and SoFi Stadium. These projects are focused on mobility and local economic recovery beyond the pandemic.
