Here’s a description of the project and web link.
LA Aerial Rapid Transit Technologies LLC, as the Project Sponsor, is proposing the Los Angeles Aerial Rapid Transit project. Metro is the lead agency for the proposed project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The proposed project would connect Los Angeles Union Station to the Dodger Stadium property via an aerial gondola system. The proposed project would also include an intermediate station at the southernmost entrance of the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The proposed project would provide an aerial rapid transit option for visitors to Dodger Stadium, while also providing access between the Dodger Stadium property, the surrounding communities, including Chinatown, Mission Junction, Elysian Park and Solano Canyon, and the Los Angeles State Historic Park, to the regional transit system accessible at Union Station.
When complete, the proposed project would have a maximum capacity of approximately 5,000 people per hour per direction, and the travel time between Union Station and Dodger Stadium would be approximately seven minutes. The proposed project would provide pedestrian improvements, including hardscape and landscape improvements, as well as amenities at the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The project would provide safe, zero emission, environmentally friendly and high-capacity transit connectivity in the project area that would reduce greenhouse gas emissions as a result of reduced vehicular congestion in and around Dodger Stadium and on neighborhood streets, arterial roadways and freeways. The proposed project would operate daily to serve existing residents, workers, park users and visitors to Los Angeles.
