1st Century Transportation for Los Angeles
Faster, Greener, Smarter, Safer, Sooner
Los Angeles voters clearly want more and better transportation options, as evidenced by the passage of major ballot measures to invest in local transportation and high-speed rail to Northern California. What are the next steps to 21st Century Transportation? Major initiatives in Congress could reform the next transportation funding bill and cap global warming pollution. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles MTA is developing their long-range plan for Los Angeles transportation and the California High-Speed Rail Authority is moving forward with plans for a 220-mile an hour bullet train. Come learn more about opportunities, obstacles, and how you can play a role in Los Angeles' transportation future.
