It’s been about four hours since the Expo Line extension to Santa Monica opened and the end-of-the-line station in Santa Monica, just blocks from the beach, is already flooded with people coming off the train and hopping on. The theme-park-long lines make sense, considering the cool ride waiting at the end. (The theme park atmosphere also makes sense considering there appears to be a man on stilts in among the hordes.)

Not that it’s a competition or anything, but almost 30,000 people took a ride aboard the Gold Line’s Foothill extension on opening day; it’ll be interesting to see what the final numbers for the Expo Line’s opening day(s) are.
