mta vs bru...again. they faced off in court 15 years ago, bru winning. i wasn't riding mta then, but as a discretionary rider, i can guarantee you i wouldn't be riding mta at all if not for the trains, which the bru does all it can to eliminate. anyhow, here's the la times's article. here are the service changes straight from the mta's mouth.
as an interesting side note, it appears the economics of the 450 (highlighted in this blog here) and silver line are netting the axe for the 450, resources being re-allocated to the silver line.
