In this edition of Metro Motion we bid a fond farewell to I-405 construction as the Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project opens the completed HOV lane and enters the home stretch. We look back at Carmageddon I and II, Rampjam and Jamzilla, at the same time we look forward to smoother sailing through the pass.
Metro Motion talks with two millennials – one a scientist and the other a teacher – to find out how climate change inspired them to live lives without cars. Sure, they’re saving money but that’s not their point. They see public transit, bikes and walking as the best ways to take care of our ailing planet and ourselves.
Summer is here and that means peak produce and time for a trip, via Metro, to explore L.A.’s fabulous farmers markets. The food is relish and these modern markets are tools to teach the public about healthy eating and cooking. Join us as we hop on Metro to explore the brand new Compton Blue Line Market, the South Pasadena nigh market and markets in Woodland Hills and downtown L.A.
Construction has begun on the 8.5-mile Crenshow/LAZ light-rail line that will link the Expo and Green lines. There will be moments of inconvenience but this new project will bring economic benefits and mobility to this interesting and historic area.
Looking for a great So Cal experience? Out favorite pedal pusher – Miek Ryan – loads his bike onto the Expo Line to Culver City, jumps on the Ballona Creek Bike Path and cycles to Marina del Ray for a free concert with the ocean as the backdrop. Beautiful!©2014 Metro | SCVTV
