Riding the Metro

When Amelia Taylor-Hochberg commutes to work, she doesn't have to worry about traffic on the I-10, 110 South, 5 North, 405 South, insert your LA highway here. She is one of the thousands of Angelenos who takes the metro to work every day. When she hears that metro ding sound accompanied by the famous 'the doors are closing', Amelia is simultaneously warned and comforted by the sound. It's a rhythmic reminder, but also a comforting tap on the shoulder --the city is looking out for her. Hearing that sound on the purple and red lines remind Amelia that the journey on the metro is just beginning.
