Since last week, this fun video featuring a portion of the right-of-way for the Expo Line's second phase has been making the rounds. "A lot of people are very excited about having a rail line come to West L.A. The video captured places people don't have access to," explained Bart Reed of The Transit Coalition, which produced the steady-cam stop motion video, complete with music by California's rock star classical composer, John Adams. "It's sort of a treat for everybody to see the first two miles" of Phase 2.

So far, the video has been viewed close to 11,000 times.

Approved earlier this year and expected to open in 2015, the second phase of the light rail route goes seven miles between Culver City and Santa Monica. The first phase, which could open next year, travels 8.6 miles between downtown L.A. and Culver City. The total cost? $2.4 billion.
