South LA

Hosted by

South Los Angeles will be more connected -- quite literally — when the new Expo Line opens to much fanfare this coming weekend. Metro's newest line will go from Pico and Flower downtown, south to USC and then west all the way to Culver City. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez recently took a preview ride with Metro CEO Arthur Leahy and County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.
