Woke up early yesterday morning, as I planned to catch the 1st train to Los Angeles, and again taking the public transport Metrolink.
It was a ronery Saturday for me as I head to Universal Studios alone. Yey to real life friends (╬ ಠ益ಠ)
Irvine carpark complex
And it seems the local station has opened the roofed car park complex. I feel secured to park my car now with the security cams everywhere.
Once arrived at Union Station, was kind of lost in finding the Red Line subway heading Hollywood. And after seeking help at a nearby receprionist, I was explained that with Metrolink ticket that comes with EZ logo, you are eligible to ride the subway for free for the whole day. Now this is cool and convenient.
Subway train and station in L.A looks slightly different than in New York. In LA, the station is super clean and not hot. Below on the left is Union Station LA, and right is 42nd St. Station NYC.
Not only that, the seat orientation in the train too defers between LA and NY. (LA on the left)
Somehow I found out the trains in LA is not crowded at all as compared to in NY. Either the local got scared due to recent tragic Metrolink crash, or people in LA just dont go out on weekends.
Unlike Metrolink time schedule of 1hrs+ between trains, The subway has the interval of 12mins between each train. Anyway, it took me 30mins to my destination, Universal City Station from Union Station.
Universal City Station
In Malaysia, we do have trains and subway, but each of the lines are not connected at all. Also theres no such thing as special pass for all lines in a single pass.
