We Took a Preview Tour of the Expo Line

The wait is almost over – Expo Line Phase I is opening!

For this Metro Duo, the Expo Line opening is personal. As long as we’ve known each other, we’ve been waiting for this Metro line to bring us together – and Saturday, April 28, it opens!

Opening weekend (Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29) the Expo Line will be FREE.

On Saturday, Metro has organized free entertainment, including live music, on-stage karaoke, performances by local dance groups, and tasty treats will be available for purchase from food trucks and local eateries. These activities will be at the stations at 7th Street/Metro Center, ExpoPark/USC, Expo/Crenshaw, and La Cienega/Jefferson.

Check out our friend, jazz singer Devon Deming, who will be belting out the tunes from 2 -2:45 p.m. at the La Cienega/Jefferson station.
