Document Description
The Los Angeles Aerial Rapid Transit Project would connect Los Angeles Union Station to the Dodger Stadium property via an aerial gondola system in downtown Los Angeles. The proposed route would travel generally along Alameda Street, Spring Street, and Bishops Road from LAUS to Dodger Stadium. The proposed Project includes options for an intermediate station to provide additional transit service adjacent to the Los Angeles State Historic Park and the location where the proposed Project flies over portions of the Park (the Spring Street Alternative and Broadway Alternative). The proposed aerial gondola system would include aerial cables, passenger stations, a non-passenger junction, towers to support the aerial cables between the stations/junction, and gondola cabins for the passengers. When complete, the proposed Project would have a maximum capacity of approximately 5,500 people per hour per direction, and the travel time from LAUS to Dodger Stadium would be approximately six or seven minutes.
