La Brea Avenue Hoover Street

I Come From a Transit Family, and I Love to Ride

Katherine Magee

I’m retired, and I take the Expo Line to the Natural History Museum and the Science Center regularly. There’s a nice view of the rose garden from the window of the train.

I grew up in Philadelphia, where there is every kind of transportation that you can think of. I come from a transit family, and I love to ride. My father worked for the Reading Railroad. It’s one of the trains on the classic Monopoly board game. He was the chief clerk for the vice president.
