EDITORIAL BUSWAY EXTENSION MTA MUST KEEP ON TOP OF ORANGE LINE EXPANSION.
Unfortunately other grander -- and much more expensive -- transportation projects have since commanded much of the MTA's energy and resources over the past year and a half. So it's heartening to see that after all the talk, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is taking actual steps toward making the busway extension a reality within our lifetime.
Unfortunately, these public-works projects take time. Even though the environmental impact reports are being prepared for the widening of Canoga Avenue as the busway is extended into Chatsworth, it could be six more years before it becomes a reality.
But it's worth it. The success of the Orange Line, and its cost-effectiveness compared with the planned Subway to the Sea, should motivate the MTA to keep on top of this extension.
