City Rolls-Out Short Video to Showcase Proposed Metro Line Extension

Post Date:October 26, 2016 5:06 PM

The City of West Hollywood has produced and rolled-out a 60-second animated video, Finish the Line!, that maps-out the many benefits of a proposal to extend the Metro Crenshaw/LAX light-rail transit line to West Hollywood and connect to the Metro Red Line station in Hollywood. The proposed Northern Extension would provide critical north-south connections and enhance the existing Metro regional rail network.

Finish the Line! abounds with colorful maps, photographs, and images that pop-up and connect the dots between regional destinations and landmarks. Set to a joyful soundtrack, the video declares “there’s an easier way to get from there to here.” It provides a quick-moving illustrated roadmap for viewers to envision how a new rail line extension would shape the future and allow people to leave cars and traffic behind and travel around the region more effortlessly.

The video is posted on the City of West Hollywood’s WeHoTV YouTube Channel at https://youtu.be/nPenhILOd0M and embedded below. It will be promoted on the City’s Facebook and Twitter pages and through a coordinated community engagement and awareness effort.

 

The West Hollywood City Council approved a plan in late 2015 to conduct outreach and build regional partnerships in support of the proposed Northern Extension of the Metro Crenshaw/LAX light-rail transit line.

During the past several months, the City’s Community Development Department has been working with West Hollywood Advocates for Metro Rail (WHAM) and the All on Board Coalition to build support for the Metro rail line extension to West Hollywood and beyond.
