Nick Andert, best known for his numerous Metro Rail fantasy maps, is now producing videos.

In a YouTube video titled "A Visual Breakdown of LA's Measure M," Andert walks viewers through all of the rail and bus rapid transit projects which would be funded by the November ballot initiative.  For further reading on the subject, please see our past coverage here and here.

If passed by Los Angeles County voters in November, Measure M would raise $120 billion to build light rail and subway lines criss-crossing Southern California.  A full buildout would more than double the current size of the Metro Rail network, with projects including a northern extension of the Crenshaw Line, an LAX connection, a light rail conversion of the Orange Line, light rail throgh the East Valley and the Gateway Cities, and a subway through the Sepulveda Pass.
