First Commuters Start Riding the Expo Line

Hosted by

For the first time since the Red Cars, there's a train from Culver City to Downtown LA.  After a weekend of free rides from the Westside to downtown and back, Metro's new Expo Line opened today for paying commuters. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez was at the La Cienega-Jefferson station, the Expo Line's furthest point west, and spoke with riders.
