    After getting a new job a month ago in Culver City, I looked at the transit times from Los Feliz and saw in the morning it would take about 3 times as long to take the train…… so I drove.

    Soon, however, it was the afternoon commute that was getting to me. An hour— maybe more —stuck in traffic, feeling aggravated, agitated, and overthinking how to game the streets.

    So now I bike to Vermont/Sunset, transfer to Expo, and bike from the Culver City station. It always takes me hour. Even though I’m stuffed into a light rail car standing with my bike, it is far more relaxing than sitting in my car stuck in automobile traffic. Biking to/from the stations make the travel time not as bad, so I hope to see bike share expanded all over.

    (Though the stop-and-go of the Expo Line thru downtown is absolutely criminal and absurd)
