The investigation grew out of plans for a new Bus Rapid Transit on Vermont Avenue – expected to run from the C (Green) Line to Hollywood Boulevard. In 2019, the Metro Board approved exploring the potential for an expanded Vermont Avenue railroad – and due to the need to locate a railroad station, the line could be extended from 120th Street to the Pacific Coast Highway serving communities, including: South Los Angeles, Harbor Gateway, Gardena, Harbor City and Wilmington. Now a Vermont Rail Conversion / Feasibility Study (completed in 2019 for the North) and a separate South Bay Extension Feasibility Study are underway.
