Rejoice: The Metro Officially Set a Date to Open in Santa Monica

Rejoice, Westside. Metro's finally announced the date that trains will start coming to Santa Monica: 5/20/16. 

On its Twitter today, Metro made the announcement in a fun animation of beach balls, although knowing the benefits of the move, maybe it should have been done in dollar-signs-saved-by-not-having-to-park-at-the-beach-anymore. The newest station's on Fourth St -- a quick walk to the ocean, pier, and the Third Street Promenade.

Jeff Miller can't wait 'til there's also a station at La Brea and Wilshire. Find out when that happens on his Instagram.
