Zach Behrens at LAist is suggesting a trolley to run throughout NoHo. His routing would have the trolley creating sort of an hourglass shaped route that would run from Chandler to Moorpark along Lankershim and Vineland.
The idea - based on a similar proposal for Long Beach - is to create a circulator system that would connect the Metro Red and Metro Orange Line termini to various points in NoHo.
A better routing would be to run from the Metro Red Line at Universal City and run down the middle of Lankershim to the old Lankershim Train Station next to the Orange Line station. Stations could be placed about every 1/4 mile which would work to feed subway users to the various points in NoHo and Universal City including theatres, restaurants, shops, etc.
I can hear the chorus of voices as to why this is not a practical idea. But many cities including San Francisco (where even some of the old Pacific Electric rail cars from LA still operate) and even San Pedro here in Los Angeles have found success with creating local transit systems with historic type trolleys.
How about we think differently for a change?
