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.
LA Councilman and Metro Board Member José Huizar (R)
was on hand at the 7th/Metro Center station to greet Expo and Blue Line passengers,
promote the new line and hand out commemorative pins.
