Los Angeles, The United States, Transportation

LA Public Transportation Going for the Gold

Pictured above: From the “Her” film, Theodore heads over to a beach in Los Angeles via train.  It is a depiction of a good future for LA public transportation.

The Los Angles Gold Line has grown tremendously.  It now traverses through the highway-heavy foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains.  It thus further connects the most urbanized basin in the United States.  The expo line, which will soon conveniently run through both USC’s neighborhoods and UCLA’s district, will connect beach-goers to a train route through its planned extension to Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade.  Overall, the United States’ second-most populated city will make NYC run for its metro moolah, for LA’s future metro system will accomplish greater public transportation feats that NYC would never be able to pull off (NYC does not have a huge basin to show off, unlike LA).  LA, if everything goes according to plan, will have longer distances on its metro capabilities.  Those distances would eventually render the City of Angels into the City of a lot of Angels.
