Now this is something long awaited in my opinion... this would complement existing services on Lines 30, 41, 50, 105, and 150, but I feel like once this is implemented, service cutbacks on those routes may be needed to drive people to light rail. And yet, I believe that the light rail will indeed be the anchor route between Downtown and UCSD... a few things:

- How will the light rail service impact current services on the three SuperLoop Routes (201, 202, and 204)? Will those three be eliminated and replaced by the light rail service, or will those still be in operation, albeit route modifications?

- How will the light rail service strengthen Westfield UTC's role as a transit hub, given that it already sees hundreds of trips per day with the MTS and Breeze (101)? And will there be a connection between the station and the mall that will help shift shoppers to use transit instead of driving?

- Will the MTS build a new depot somewhere to handle the additional demand along the northern section of the route? I mean, within University City, I see a dozen bus lines that criss-cross the area, so I suspect an additional train house somewhere can help provide shuttle service around University City and offer late-night services where needed.
