The Metro Blue Line opened today twenty years ago, back in 1990.

For a blast from the past, check out this Metro Blue Line promotional video… starring none other than the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Yes, I thought it was a joke too but then I clicked “play” and realized this was real.

It’s also “I Love Transit” week at Metro. Today’s “I Love Transit” poll asked us to vote on our favorite rail line and explain why. Five Lines! So hard to choose!

I decided I would go with the Metro Red Line. It’s the line with the station near my old South-of-Melrose-Hill neighborhood (Beverly/Vermont) and it’s also the line that provides speedy access through the Cahuenga Pass to my family and friends who live in the Valley.
