Not that it's anyone's business, but today I took the subway.
It was inconvenient, took almost twice as long had I used my car instead. And yet, I am still so very happy that I used the public transportation system that this city is trying to cobble together.
A very serious twenty minute walk is required to get from my house to the Red Line at Hollywood and Highland. It's a low uphill grade the whole way. The train does come with regular frequency. I took it three stops to Sunset and Vermont and then walked the ten minutes to where I was going on Hollywood Boulevard (a little music rehearsal, if anyone is asking).
After the rehearsal, I walked back to my house (3.8 miles).
I got so much exercise. I enjoyed taking public transportation instead of using my car.
Now I beg the city of Los Angeles, the State of California and the federal government: Please build monorails. La Brea, Fairfax, La Cienega, Olympic, Santa Monica Boulevard, Venice, Jefferson, Sepulveda, Moorpark, Hollywood Way, Laurel Canyon, PCH, and more. Just do it. Do it.
