Eyes on the “Street”: Spokker Grabs Shots of the Fare Gates

Over the weekend regular commenter Spokker posted some pictures from his Flickr feed of the fare gate installation at Union Station and Wilshire/Normandie.  Spokker also shot a surprise picture for us.  Apparently Metro is also experimenting with screens that update bus arrival times at some stations.  I have an email to Metro staff and we'll update that story as soon as I hear news.  In the meantime, you can see many of  Spokker's fare gate shots in one place after the jump.
