In a statement released today, Metro announced they were officially applying for federal money to help pay for the Wilshire subway extension, as well as the Regional Connector that would link up various light-rail lines and provide transfer-less trips around the County. "The two projects are expected to score highly in the rankings necessary to secure Full Funding Grant Agreements (FFGA) under current federal New Starts requirements," according to the release. Metro is hoping the president helps fund these two easy-to-sell projects, so local Measure R monies can be freed up to pay for less high-profile rail lines like the Gold Line Foothill extension into Montclair.
