Mass transit riders in Los Angeles have a lot to look forward to in the coming decades when, in just rail alone, many lines are set to open or expand.

Overseeing all that growth will be the new CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Phil Washington.

Washington will lead Metro starting in May once he wraps up his tenure in Denver. There, he led the city's own multi-billion dollar expansion.

He joins Take Two with his own vision of how to transform and improve public transportation in Southern California.
