Long Beach “Transit Mall” – California

MTA (Los Angeles’ regional transit system) train at Long Beach, California. Busses from Orange County Transit (OCTA), Torrance Transit, Long Beach Transit (LBTA), MTA and Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) Express can be seen at this, the southern-most terminus of Los Angeles’ rapid-transit network. This was a rare day, as there was a wire-down on the line, and for some reason it was necessary to use these train-sets, ones that quite obviously don’t belong on the ‘Blue’ Line.
