About Season 1 

The first season of six episodes aired in summer 2020, when Metro Art and dublab teamed up to offer multimedia arts and cultural journeys across Los Angeles to transit riders during the pandemic—wherever they happened to be located. 

Episodes 1-3 looked at the musical histories of neighborhoods near new rail projects under construction — as seen from a Metro Bike. Episodes 4-6, timed to coincide with Bike Month, connected music and communities accessible via Metro Rail, Bus and Bike.
