The new Expo Line did what it was designed to do this afternoon, carrying many USC fans to the Trojans’ football season opener against Hawaii. It is the first time in nearly six decades that there has been train service to a football game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Extra service was added on the Expo Line and throughout the Metro system and up to now everything has been running smoothly. “It’s a great start for a new L.A.-Trojan-Metro tradition,” said Metro CEO Art Leahy.
Here are some photos taken this afternoon by Metro’s Marc Littman:
The last photo shows the command center that Metro is using near USC to monitor train service.
