Metro Motion is Metro’s quarterly television show that airs on cable channels around L.A. But some of us Millennials view cable television the same way we view CD players – outdated technology that’s best left alone. Luckily Metro realizes this and has put Metro Motion on one of my favorite media outlets – YouTube.
The news magazine style show is 30 minutes long and split into three YouTube videos, perfect for bite size consumption throughout your “work” day.
Here’s some highlights from the Spring 2010 episode:
- L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky talks about the importance of transit in the 3rd District and how the Red Line saved L.A.’s best pastrami sandwich.
- Metro riders share their thoughts on Metro’s newest lines: the Silver Line and Metro Line 902.
- A look at how Metro’s highway engineers are using smart technology to reduce congestion on L.A.’s freeways.
- More on dining options along the Gold Line Eastside Extension (might not want to watch this segment on an empty stomach)
- Metro’s chief librarian Matthew Barrett shares a small sampling of the Metro Library’s extensive collection of historical Los Angeles transit photographs.
