A preview of what's to come on May 20

Those who weren't already pumped about riding the new Expo Line extension all the way to Santa Monica come May 20 might feel a little differently after watching this Metro video showcasing the new route.

Set to an appropriately peppy soundtrack, the video showcases the possibilities of a Westside train, showing the train cruising effortlessly westward across the tracks all the way to the new end of the line in downtown Santa Monica, just a short walk away from the beach and the Santa Monica Pier.

Lack of signal priority aside, the upcoming Expo Line extension looks like a pretty awesome ride. The whole line and seven new stations from Culver City to the beach are set to open on May 20.
