Remember the phrase, "Sit back, relax and leave the driving to us"? A lot of people are doing that these days in Glendale, boosting ridership on the city's Beeline shuttle bus to 1.7 million riders last year. The small, quiet buses that connect neighborhoods to downtown Glendale and Metrolink trains have become very popular with residents. "I love The Beeline," said Glendale resident Toni LaMotte, who gave up driving when she retired.

The classic hike from the floor of Utah's Zion Canyon to the rimrock Observation Point still offers everything it always has: a sampling of slick-rock country, passage through a narrow canyon and stunning views. But now hikers will find more. More quietude. Count me as an enthusiastic supporter of Zion National Park's shuttle system, started in 2000. During the peak season of March to October, visitors must ride buses into the heart of Zion Canyon, leaving their cars behind.

The lines of fans were as long as the distance to the left-field fence was short. The memories were even longer. Half a century slipped off the calendar Saturday night and baseball attendance records were shattered as the Dodgers returned to the arena that welcomed them here for good from Brooklyn -- the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Fresh off a flight from Dallas, Tom and Kimberly Matson stood in front of the new John Wayne Airport terminal on a recent Sunday evening and grappled with the Shuttle Bus Problem. The buses were parked in their designated lot several hundred feet from the terminal. But standing between the Matsons and that last ride home were a street, a flower bed, a wall and no clear route to the buses.

Tens of thousands of Valley residents limped through the transit strike Monday, hampered by frustrating waits, late arrivals at jobs and no-shows at school campuses. Although it was Day Three of the walk-off by Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers, the bus and subway shutdown hit hard as many students and employees struggled to find transit alternatives for the first time. In the Valley, about 180,000 people ride the MTA's Red Line subway and the 34 bus routes that travel here.

As part of a plan to reduce traffic around Los Angeles International Airport, officials Monday approved a park-and-ride that will offer nonstop bus service from Union Station downtown to LAX. The Union Station FlyAway, scheduled to open March 15, is the first of eight park-and-rides that the city's airport agency hopes to open over the next decade to provide a mass transit option to LAX. Officials also are considering locations in Chatsworth, Inglewood, Long Beach and Sylmar.
