MTA Proposes Direct Line to NFL Stadium

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority board of directors agreed last Thursday to explore the construction of a rail line that would carry passengers directly to the planned NFL stadium that will house the Rams and possibly one other team in Inglewood. The proposed line, dubbed the “South Bay Transit Corridor Rail Project,” would stretch from the under-construction Crenshaw/LAX Line in Inglewood south to Torrance.

The teams have proposed a shared $1.78 billion stadium in the city of Carson — one of two stadium projects being considered by the NFL near Los Angeles that could bring professional football back to the region after a two-decade absence. Carmen Policy, a former San Francisco 49ers executive who was hired to help oversee the Carson project, said Monday that the teams have agreed to shift divisions, if necessary, to make the project
