    Good news if you use Culver City station in any capacity (drive, bike, walk): http://thesource.metro.net/2013/01/25/expo-lines-culver-city-station-parking-lot-to-be-repaved/

    FWIW, $300k sounds like a lot of money but by my rough estimate it’s about right for that much asphalt. That’s about $500 per spot… which if you assume a 30-year life, 4% interest, and 220 weekdays a year, is a subsidy of $0.13 per spot per day. Not terrible in the grand scheme of things. Of course, if they sell the lot to a developer sometime soon, they’ll come out way ahead…
