Man those look high tech. I wonder how the metallic finish will fair compared to the white one that the older cars have and that has become spotted with rust over the years.

Hey Lone Rider, I thought you might be interested in seeing this article on LA's transit system and the investment in buses versus rail. Enjoy.

How you ridden one of these god-awful things? The brakes are horrendous. I'm convinced I'm going to either get whiplash or fall down every time I'm on one of these.

I appreciate that the plastic seats are easier to clean and that they are wider for our ever-enlarging behinds, but between the smoothness of the seat, the fact it's wider than most T passengers and the jerky brakes, you always go flying into the person next to you whenever the train comes to a stop.
