I rode the blue line to Long Beach and back a few years ago.  It didn't look quite as nice as what I'm seeing here.  The blue line took too long, though.  It seemed like the ride was a solid 60 minutes, maybe a little more.  Too many stops, it was originally a 4-track ROW so they could do express trains but they don't.

I've taken the Blue Line from downtown Long Beach to Downtown Los Angeles and it seems to hit 58 minutes every single time.

Long Beach is a gem.  A touch of urban Florida in California.  Thanks for this.

I lived on the other side of the Vincent Thomas Bridge in the 1980s when the 'rebuild Long Beach' effort was new. Thirty years later, the results are better than I ever thought possible.
There's nothing wrong with optimism, as long as you don't get your hopes up.
