$920 million for 12 mph

I have taken the new Expo line now three times from USC to downtown LA.  According to Google Maps, the distance is 2.5 miles.  The trip has, on average, taken 13 minutes.  This works out to 11.5 mile per hour.

Metro spent $920 million on a line that does not get signal priority at traffic lights--in other words, it expended huge capital costs on a large bus that is stuck on one route.
