City Council Approves Next Step for the DTLA Streetcar

The Downtown Los Angeles Streetcar, a signature project for 14th District Councilmember Jose Huizar and the Bringing Back Broadway initiative, took a step forward with the unanimous approval today of a new report by the Los Angeles City Council.  This action allows the City to begin formal discussions with Metro, which has earmarked $200 million for the project through the transportation sales tax imposed passed through Measure M.
The City of Los Angeles will explore ways in which Metro can release funds for the street car as soon as possible, as Measure M is currently not scheduled to fund construction until the 2050s.  The project team is also exploring a grant from the Federal government’s small starts program, as well as a potential public-private partnership to fund the project incrementally.

Une Petite Comparaison Entre le Metro de Los Angeles et celui de Paris

Dans 4 jours exactement le 20 may 2016 s’ ouvre la ligne de Metro dans Los Angele entre Downtown Los Angeles et Santa Monica Beach. Pour cette occasion nous allons faire une petite comparaison entre le Metro de Paris qui existe depuis 116 ans plus precisement  depuis le  19 juillet  1900 a celui de Los Angeles qui n existe il n ya Qu environ 26 ans plus exactement depuis 1990. Le metro de Paris considere comme parmi le plus Grand du monde et deuxieme en Europe après celui de Moscou, Du jour est clairement plus avance que celui de Los Angeles nouvellement construit.

Le Metro de Paris  a une estimation de 214 kilometer de distance sois 133miles avec 303 stations et transporte plus de 4,210 million  personnes par jour. comme indique en haut    est parmi le plus Grand du monde deuxieme en Europe  après celui de Moscou. La station Chatelet les halls est considere comme la plus grande station de metro au monde entier avec 5 lignes de metro et 3 RER.  Il est cependant important de souligner que le Metro a Paris represente une tradition dont pratiquement tout le monde a paris prend le metrop. Les riches , les moyens, les pauvres , les touristes et le reste.

Par contre Le system de Metro de Los Angeles  est relativement Jeune comme souligne en haut. Avec 26 ans d existence depuis 1990, il consistent de 86 stations, 139.7 klm de distance et transporte pres de 362,904 milles personnes par jour selon les statistics de 2012. Aujourdh ui avec un planning accelere des construtions dans les 30 annees qui suivent, l intention est celui de transformer le system a devenir parmi le plus grand du monde ou meme le plus grand du monde. Il est important de souligner que, tend bien que la ville de Los Angeles est relativement jeune avec une existence de pres de 234 ans, La negligence de la construction du metro peut etre attribue par le fait que Los Angeles est connu de ses tremblement de terre. et le system routier beaucoup plus develope  pour donner une bonne explication a la grandeur de la ville qui est beaucoup plus vaste que Paris et pratiquement tout le monde a Los Angeles a une voiture. Pour cette Raison, le metro a Los Angeles dans le passe a toujours ete considere comme un loisir et plus frequente par les pauvres et les touristes. Il est pratiquement impossible de rencontrer Angeline Jolie ou le president d une grande compagnie dans un metro.
