And They Say Los Angeles Doesn’t Have Transit. Hah!

Tonight, I went to go see Meeting of Minds at the Steve Allen Theatre in Hollywood (look for the review tomorrow — in short, it was great). As I was at work, I didn’t want to drive there (given that my wife was driving in from the valley). So, I took public transit. I left work at the normal time, walked to the Green Line, then transferred to the Blue Line, and then transferred to the Red Line. I got off at the Sunset/Vermont station, and walked the four blocks north of Hollywood to meet my wife. Total transit time: about 80 minutes. Total cost: $3.75.

The trains ran smoothly, transfers were easy (other than buying a fresh ticket each time), and the cars were clean. Great job, Metro.
