Mass transit for the future

Dear Editor:The people of Downey, Bellflower, Norwalk, Lakewood and Paramount will have a golden opportunity to make their concerns known for mass transportation from Santa Ana to downtown Los Angeles if they attend a Southern California Association of Government (SCAG) meeting on Wednesday, May 23, at John Simms Park in Bellflower at 5:30 p.m. This final study session will determine the future re-use of the Pacific Electric right of way and will affect many people. I personally favor magnetic levitation as the rideway in the skyway, gliding along on a single track so silently on concrete pylons, creating no noise or pollution, and greater safety for all motorists and pedestrians alike with no ground level gridlock at crossings. For the safety and health of all, this is the wave of the future for mass transit, and can move 80,000 people a day to these end destinations of L.A. and Santa Ana, and Disneyland too. Let's not go backwards into the future with ground level transit and the problems it causes. This is a healthier way to travel, and safer too. Please attend! Joe Cvetko, Bellflower
