I’ve been living in Culver City for six months now and I just now looked up Culver City on Wikipedia. Aside from the usual “Roots of Hollywood” context, there’s some good news:
Looks like Culver City might get some light rail! The MTA’s Mid-City/Exposition Light Rail Transit Project will run from downtown LA, through USC/Exposition Park, to downtown Culver City (check the map). That is totally totally awesome – public transit I can take from my house to USC, where I’m going to school!
Groundgreaking is in 2006, delayed by noise protests from nearby Cheviot Hills (according to Wikipedia). The light rail line is predicted to be finished by 2010, just 3 years after I am set to graduate.
