The much anticipated metro-rail opening is this Friday April 28th! Although only Phase one will be opening this Friday, it still allows the students to travel and explore downtown LA, during the last couple weeks of school. Phase one of the metro goes from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City. The metro rail is a block away from campus so it is very convenient for students and faculty to explore different areas and cities around LA. It will also allow us students to go from USC, to restaurants and attractions in Culver City and in downtown LA without a car.
Phase 2 of the metro rail will open in 2015 and this will allow us to go from USC to Santa Monica Beach in 45 minutes! Which is a lot faster than a car considering there is always so much traffic getting to and from the beach. I can’t wait for all these new changes. USC just keeps getting better and better (which is hard to imagine considering its already the best!)
