Love on the rails: Will the Expo extension motivate daters to cast a wider net?

Posted by

Metro’s latest Expo extensions make their debut today. The additional 6.6 miles of track took about four years and $1.5 billion dollars to lay.

There are seven new stops, allowing riders to — for the first time since over six decades — ride rails from Downtown LA to Downtown Santa Monica. The new track could mean less time on the road for commuters.

It could also bring some relief to the city’s daters.

That’s right, daters.

As part of a special look at the new Expo extension, and the places to see and do, along the way, we consider how one’s love life might be affected. Several PIN sources shared how their commutes have affected their love lives.
