Moving to the area for work and was wondering if I live off of the San Bernardino metrolink line, when I bring the train in to Union Station and then transfer to the LA metro system, will I end up ...

paying two different fares since they are two different lines? Or is there a pass that allows me to use both for one fare?

If you get a monthly metro link pass ending at union station you can use it for free transfers to the metro system. So only one monthly pass fare that you need to pay

Thank you for the insight.

In case you didn’t know, it’s a 2 hour train ride from SB to union station

I like the Monrovia area, you can take gold line to DTLA. Also depends how far you want to live from downtown

Just another pointer- the last train leaves the station at 6:30, and it takes around 15-20 minutes to get to union station from where the big4 are (idk where you’re working). So you won’t be able to work long hours if you’re planning to ride the train back.

Yeah i remember when I commuted from LA to Irvine, the metrolink trains ended at 6:30 but Amtrak had trains about every hour till 11pm so just depends on the line and schedules

So as much as I embrace the tenets of socialism, I have to admit: I'm not a part of a union. I don't know of any programmer's union and I don't know where to start if I want to organize in my own company.

If anyone has any pointers, I'd love some guidance. Also guidance in convincing my coworkers to organize, which might be a hard sell because most of us are pretty happy with our working conditions and pay as far as I can tell.

LACOE wants to have coaches not be considered classified or certificated, just temporary. With no Union, no voice, no respect, no appreciation, no rights.
