The Yellow Car and Los Angeles, Metro Art’s new exhibition in the Union Station Waiting Room Gallery, offers a fond look back at two foundations of public transit in the region: the “Yellow Cars” of Los Angeles Railway Corporation and the transition to LA’s first years of bus service. Together, these early rail and bus lines shaped the Metro system we have today.
