Summer Metro Motion celebrates the Orange Line Extension and takes a trip to the golden age of film and food, Culver City style

In the newest edition of Metro Motion, now running on television and the web, Los Angeles continues its 2012 transit celebration with scenes from the Orange Line Extension opening in the San Fernando Valley and an awesome bike ride along the Metro Orange Line — the longest transit-adjacent bikeway in Los Angeles County.

Metro Motion also celebrates the opening of the Culver City and Farmdale stations of Expo light-rail Phase 1 and takes viewers along for a sampling of some of the best places to eat in Culver City. In yet another segment, we step into Culver City history where some of the best movies of the golden age of film were shot. (Think “Gone With the Wind,” “The Wizard of Oz” and “Singin’ In the Rain,” as well as the Laurel and Hardy and Our Gang films.)

Also in the show, Metro’s new board chair Michael D. Antonovich talks about his plans for the coming year as board chair.
