MoveLA has put together this adorable video visualizing the entire potential build-out of the LA light rail system.

LA now has 88 miles of light rail lines (current lines: Red/Purple, Blue, Green, Gold, Expo Phase 1) with an average weekday ridership of 362,904, as of June 2012.

Compare that to the Bay Area’s BART system (built in the 1960s) that has 104 miles of lines and a current  weekday ridership of 379,300.

 Note that Metro’s bus ridership eclipses its rail ridership, with over 1.1 Million weekday boardings.

I really love this video, it's a fun and easy way for people of all ages to memorize the metro lines in LA.
