After years of hurdles, an expansion of the Los Angeles Westside subway has survived a court challenge.

On Wednesday, a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ruled that the transportation authority had taken all necessary environmental steps to move forward.

The expansion has received flak for its plans to tunnel the new system underneath Beverly Hills High School.

Laura Nelson, transportation reporter for the L.A. Times, joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to talk about next steps for the transit plans.
