not at 7 am you won't! i usually get on about 8:30 and get home 7-7:30.
Ive taken the blue line many times. Last time I took it the train broke down and we all had to get out and get on the next one, but the most memorable experience was when a girl and I went up to hollywood and was approached by a man offering to take out his fake eye for us. What a charmer. im not worried about the people though.
Yes, I know the gentleman. he begs occasionally, walking up and down the aisle saying in really bad spanish "no tengo mis espejos". it always makes a big finish when he pops out the glass eye. there are some characters ... there's "pat" who I can't tell if shes a he or vice versa, who sings "jesus loves me" louder and faster until somebody gives him/her money. Then there's the stinky woman ... probably 250 pounds and smells like she hasn't wiped her *ss since sixth grade. all the spanish ladies squirt perfume all over when she goes by. mostly, though, it's folks selling candy and bootleg dvds.
How is the park and ride up there? My biggest complaint is that once you get in lb the train doesnt have the right of way, so it take forever to get through (im at the transit mall). I thought about driving the 5 minutes north and parking there to save 20 minutes on the back end.
it's a good park and ride. there's a big parking structure. there's also a starbucks, if necessary. i do find that when i go all the way downtown i'm surprised at how much longer it takes.
