Los Angeles, CA – The newly extended Expo line has created a lot of excitement in the Downtown area and surrounding communities. Both the local area and USC have greatly benefitted from this new project. It allows community members to have the opportunity to not only explore different parts of Los Angeles, but also allows the community to have easier access and opportunities to jobs and employment. On June 20th, 2012 at noon the Culver City and Farmdale stations will be opened for the first time.
In efforts to promote public transportation and mark the occasion of this event, Metro will provide free day passes to the public for the Expo Line. In addition, this event coincides with Downtown Culver City’s “Summer Solstice” Happy Hour event, which has a number of participating businesses providing free goodies and offers for the public. The combination of both events should greatly entice the public to explore new parts of Los Angeles County as well as provide an affordable means to do so.
The Expo Line will bring Los Angeles County closer as its aim is to connect Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica. The completion of the project will alleviate traffic on the Interstate 10 freeway, reduce carbon emissions, and promote community by riding on efficient public transportation.
