As we do in all major cities that we visit, we took the public transportation while in Los Angeles over the weekend. It was clean, safe, on time, and an altogether wonderful experience. I met a fantastic screenwriter whose name I’ve forgotten, a schoolteacher from Houston, a construction worker, two older Russian ladies, a British couple, and a host of other wonderful people.
Still when I asked at a coffee shop where I could pick up the subway the girl said she was from L.A but had never ridden the subway in her life (with a bit of a subconsciously patronizing tone I might add). What a pitty that so many people are missing out on this mind awakening part of our culture. Lets bring back the train and make it cool again!
Help by sharing your wonderful train/bus experiences and perhaps some of your nightmares as well.
