In an unexpected change of heart and funding at Metro, this past week has shown us public transportation can get an edge in LA. After announcing the LAX Green Line extension and the promised completion of the Subway to the Sea by 2011, Metro will announce next Friday night the Red Line Owl Service. With only 15-minute headways throughout the night, drunkards can stumble to their car in North Hollywood rather than at the Hollywood/Highland complex.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will inaugurate the first 12:45 a.m. subway ride after having a drink at The Burgundy Room, followed by a garlic dog and fries at Skooby's.

The following Monday, he will introduce Los Angeles as the first city to embrace a transit skyway dedicated to people who commute by jet pack. Later in the day, he be at the groundbreaking for the 405/101 to LAX Skybucket transit line.
