The Observer - a photo journal

Metro Liner | 2009-03-14 |

When my old Subaru was dying a slow death a few years ago I started taking the bus to places like downtown, because I didnít know if my car could make it. But the side effect was that I discovered mass transit here in LA. Itís a hard city to ride the bus in, thatís for sure. Growing up we didnít have a car, so the bus is no stranger to me. I like the improvements the MTA has made, what with the nicer buses, the subway, lightrail. But, there is still more they can do. I wish someone would create either a lightrail line, or bus line that goes from the valley to the Westside. Years ago there was an idea to build a network of monorail lines. There are some who think thatís the best way to go, since it would mean not having to drill a hole in the ground. Anyways, Iím not saying that LA will ever be a place that you wonít need a car. But I know that Iíve let go a little and taken to the bus for side trips and stuff, why not you?
