    The 405 keeps me on my toes.
    I'm usually going to the Valley.
    I start on the Westside.
    It takes about an hour to go six to seven miles...
    Oh man, it takes me like three hours...
    I travel the 405 three or four days out of the week.
    I go from the South Bay to the Valley.
    I'm commuting about an hour and a half every day.
    I get off the 405 and take Sepulveda back roads.
    I can go over Laurel Canyon, I can go over Coldwater Canyon...
    If I take a bus, it's just going to take me even longer.
    My wife and I use the 405 early.
    She works at LAX.
    We get up at 2:30am to avoid the early morning traffic.
    I have a lot of friends who live in Santa Monica and they want to have house parties and
    barbecues -- and I'm just going, "nah, forget it."
    The travel options are terrible -- that's the reality of it right now.
    Traveling between the Valley, Westside and LAX isn't easy or fast.
    And traffic will only increase.
    That's why Metro is exploring alternatives to the 405.
    The Sepulveda Transit Corridor Project will provide rail as a new option to serve this
    congested route and fill a gap in Metro's current network, from the San Fernando Valley,
    to the Westside, to LAX -- with connections to the Orange, Purple and Expo Lines.
    The Measure M half-cent sales tax includes $9.5 billion in funding for this project.
    And Sepulveda Transit Corridor is also on the list of projects that Metro is looking
    to accelerate -- so that more travel options can be available sooner.
    If I could take a train between Sherman Oaks and the South Bay, I would do it in a heart
    Do I enjoy not having to drive?
    I could read my book, I could study, I could check my emails...
    If I could take Metro everywhere I went, I would be sooo happy.
    Parking tickets?
    You don't have to worry about that with Metro.
    You never know who you're going to meet on the train.
    I met my boyfriend on the train -- and we're about to get married -- so, I love the train.
    Where would I like to take transit?
    Wherever I have to go.
