Metro Motion — Metro’s popular quarterly cable TV show — has just been released. The newest edition celebrates summer with a breathtaking ride along the beautiful Pacific. All we need to do is take the Metro Rapid 720 to Santa Monica, hop on a bike and pedal the South Bay Beach Trail all the way to Redondo Beach. It’s a great bike path — partially funded by Metro — and the perfect highway for a gorgeous sea-side excursion.
Another Metro Motion piece takes us on a day trip to explore a few fascinating offerings in Metro’s Destination Discounts program. It’s a reminder that Metro riders with valid TAP cards can get special offers for great shopping and dining, museums, sporting events and more. Tag along and sample a couple of participating locations along the Gold Line in Chinatown. There might just be an experience in it for you.
In another story we explore Metro’s growing highway program and answer the questions: Are freeways free? Have they ever been free? Find out how highways are evolving and HOT lanes are helping Metro relieve traffic and may one day even speed up construction projects.
Finally, take a walk through Metro’s new gate-latching system and see how easy it is. And watch a demonstration of Metro’s innovative new hands-free system for unlatching the gates so that people in wheelchairs don’t need to do it themselves.
Metro Motion runs quarterly on cable stations throughout Los Angeles County.
