TalkbackHere it is. After decades of debate, L.A. transit officials have selected a basic route for the proposed Westside subway.

It largely follows Wilshire Boulevard, which has long been the expected route. Other alternatives have been considered, including a route through West Hollywood and the Beverly Center/Cedars-Sinai Medical Center area.
