The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority has identified several transit projects for possible fast-tracking before the Olympics come to Los Angeles in 2024 or 2028.
Those on this map are some of the key projects that are being considered. Estimated completion dates are before fast-tracking.
