The much anticipated Expo Line opened this weekend, finally bringing rail service between Downtown and the Westside. As part of the festivities along the line, the team from LA/2B was stationed at the Expo Park/USC station to promote our LA/2B Challenge and discover all the bright ideas Angelenos have for our future transporation.
Much like we have heard through our Virtual Townhall, our participants this weekend urged us to help create a more bikable and walkable Los Angeles with more reliable and convenient transit options. Also, an overwhelming number of people who stopped by our booth stressed their desire for safer walking and biking facilities. Safety-minded Angelenos gave us ideas such as “wider sidewalks”, “protected bicycle lanes”, “slower speeds near schools and parks”, “safer crosswalks”, and “better pedestrian lighting” again and again.
Some happy Angelenos with their great ideas (more after the jump):
