This is all pretty wishful thinking, right? Measure R only includes funding for BRT on Vermont, and only between Wilshire and the 105. Metro's study of rail in the corridor, or south extension to Wilmington, is purely for the purpose of future-proofing.

I assume this is part of the reasoning for a bored tunnel alignment - if you build a cut-and-cover tunnel with an existing BRT line above, you basically have to remove the BRT line for the duration of construction. Bored tunnel avoids those impacts.
