Metro Rider LA noticed a pattern in our "20 Under 30" series. They saw similarites in some of the answers to this question: “ If you could make one thing be different in LA for your 30th birthday, what would you change?“

”I’d probably like a comprehensive, convenient, and affordable public transportation system…” -Meghana Bhatt “I would make a subway line down Wilshire from downtown to the beach, that stops at virtually every cross street. Is that so much to ask?” -Leah Dieterich

“Having a respectable public transit system could also unify the Southland, like New York — Mayor Bloomberg takes the subway to work — Villaraigosa on a bus? Not in a million years. But hopefully by my 30th birthday.” -Micah Adam Cohen

”Put a monorail throughout the city with Ray Bradbury as the conductor. He has to wear the hat though.” -Chris Cruse

Wonder if Metro Rider LA also noticed that the newish editor of LAist coincidentaly has a blog named the busblog?
