From Kristine, a 1st year undergrad:
Hi! My name is Kristine and we met at the club fair a couple days ago. I just wanted to thank you for all your help. Thanks to google maps [note: and Google Transit] my friend Kelly and I made it to the Ellen Show yesterday by bus. It sure was an adventure.
On the way there, we took the 761, I believe (I know it was to Pacioma or something like that) to Van Nuys, where we got on the 94 I think it was and got off at Pass and Riverside. Then on the way back we took a different route. I think it was the 222 to the 2. That one was harder to find because we had to walk a couple blocks to find the 2 once we got downtown. I was pretty stressed because I'd never taken public transportation without someone who knows where they're going before, but in the end we made it to Ellen and had fun there.
Have a great week and thanks again
I'm ecstatic to hear that you made it to Burbank and that Google Transit worked well for you. It must've been quite an adventure. I hope you are brave enough to try transit again, especially to explore more of LA (and the Valley).
