Metro's web site, metro.net, has launched the Metro Motion cable television show on Metro Interactive, the metro.net video page. Metro Motion is a half-hour news show featuring a variety of entertaining and informative transportation news and feature stories. It runs quarterly on cable stations throughout Los Angeles County.
Metro Interactive is also home to videos from the Go Metro campaign, as well as live chats with Metro Board members and staff and comments from riders in the Transit Takes feature. Next up will be a tool to allow transit enthusiasts to share their traffic photos in a slide show format.
"In all of these formats we try to explore L.A.'s evolving transportation picture," said Marc Littman, Metro Deputy Executive Officer of Public Relations. "At the same time we try to inform people about the options becoming available to help us all escape traffic."
To access the Metro Motion shows, go to multimedia.metro.net and click on the Metro on TV icon at the top of the page.
