Los Angeles metro board will decide, at its 2016.03.24 meeting, whether to institute parking fees at nine stations (three of which have not yet opened).

New renderings for the LAX people mover.



An aerial view of one of the Intermodal Transportation Facilities, where passengers will be able to check in, get picked up and dropped off, and hop onto the APM to go to the terminals, a LAWA fact sheet says.

A nighttime view of one of the new pedestrian walkways.



Inside the automated people mover system. Passengers on the APM will only have to wait about two to three minutes for a tram, which will take them to the main terminals.



Quote:
Last Friday, Los Angeles World Airports—the departments that runs Los Angeles International Airport—held a forum to present and discuss information on the transportation plan that will totally transform the way Angelenos get to and move through LAX. Known as the Landside Access Modernization Program, the plan includes a new automated people mover to carry passengers from the Metro system to the terminals, a consolidated rental car facility, new transportation hubs, and more public parking and pedestrian walkways. LAWA has provided Curbed with some of the new glimpses into LAX's more awesome transportation future.
LAMP is due to be completed, at least partially, by 2023 (in time for the 2024 Olympics, if LA is chosen to host them). A fact sheet from the forum says that construction is expected to begin on the project in the second half of 2017, with "Completion of Phase 1
(including APM & ConRAC)" estimated for sometime in 2023. The materials do emphasize that the light rail station that will ultimately connect Metro to the airport via the Crenshaw Line is a separate project overseen by Metro, and while the agency will work with the LAMP, the project is more of a complement than an actual part of LAWA's plan (that is, they don't really have control over it).

Did I just miss it or isn't it mentioned anywhere how long rid would take from the light rail station to the closest and furthest terminal stop?

Surely there are better uses of taxpayer funds than a streetcar that connects downtown Santa Ana to a suburban golf club...

I absolutely agree with that, but didn't you also waste precious time coming up with this witty retort?

Why in the world aren't they trying to integrate this with LA Metro's West Santa Ana Branch plan?

Los Angeles and Orange County evidently prefer their transit to be balkanized, split into "Big Blue Bus", "Little Green Bus", "LA DOT" and other agencies that seemingly cover the same areas. This is not going away any time soon.

Already planning to take it to work that morning and doing a bar crawl that evening. Will probably get pretty hyped. I'm not planning on being the first one kicked off the new extension, but hey, if it happens it happens...
