Beginning tomorrow at noon, you can board the Expo Line for free at the newly opened Farmdale and Culver City Stations. You’ll be handed a voucher for a free return trip at that time.
The Farmdale Station has been the subject of some controversy, given its proximity to Dorsey High School and the lingering questions about the safety of the at-grade crossing for students and residents. Those questions likely can’t be answered fully until school is back in session in the fall.
If you would prefer not to think about questions of safety, you are in luck. The inauguration of the Culver City stop coincides nicely with their “Summer Solstice” event, where you will be plied with lots of free stuff, including booze. Just make sure you are back on the train by 9 p m — that’s when the free pass expires.
