Good news LA! The Expo extension line to Santa Monica opens today! In celebration of this opening I give you a list of tips & tricks. Over the course of 7 months and after many fails on my part, I have learned a number of ways to make my metro commute the best it can be. So whether you are are commuting to work or just taking a day trip to the beach (because now you can) I hope these tips & tricks will be helpful to you.
“Stand clear the doors are closing. The next stop is Wardlow Station.” I boarded the Metro Blue line and took a seat next to a window. The rising sun was peaking in and reflecting a golden glow off the seats. The train car was quiet, some people were sleeping while others were listening to music or reading on their phones. I sipped my hot coffee and put on my favorite podcast. Radiolab had a new episode. Mmmm my happy place.
