Riding the Metro just got a whole lot easier; at least that’s the Metro Transportation Authority’s goal.
With the grand opening of the Gold Line Foothill Extension on March 5 and a new Expo Line connecting Downtown Los Angeles to Downtown Santa Monica opening later this month, taking public transportation to Citrus College and neighborhoods like Pasadena and Santa Monica is possible.
Have the new extensions and added Wi-Fi convinced you to start riding the Metro? How will these new extensions and technological upgrades change how Angelenos commute?
