In the newest edition of Metro Motion, now running on television and the web, we tag along on a trip down the Metro Red Line with actor and regular Metro rider Vincent Kartheiser of TV’s “Mad Men.” Kartheiser gave up his car for public transit to help make Los Angeles — and the world — a better place. He says the switch has improved his life, as well as his commute.
Also on the show:
•A winter visit to Pasadena on a rainy day on the Gold Line includes museums, shopping and dining and, if the timing is right, the Rose Bowl and Rose Parade.
•Construction crews for the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Enhancement Project show what it’s like to labor in the dark of night so that rush hour freeway traffic is minimally inconvenienced.
•An interview with Metro Board Member and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas explores the upcoming Crenshaw/LAX Line and how it’s going to make our region more mobile.
•What’s new in green vehicles, low- and no-impact cars that currently are on the market and the newest in Metro’s clean-burning fleet.
