Ontario To LA In 20 Minutes? Councilman Backs High-Speed Rail

Councilman Bill Rosendahl has asked Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Los Angeles World Airports to work with officials at Metrolink to consider options for connecting the L.A./Ontario International Airport (ONT) to the rail line.

KNX 1070′s Vytas Safronikas reports Rosendahl is hoping to help move airport passengers faster with a high-speed rail connection.

“The mayor has the authority to take Measure R funds and move it around with some flexibliity,” said Rosendahl. “What I’ve suggested is put a direct link into Ontario, and you’ll be downtown in less than 25 minutes.”
Next stop, Willoughby
