Streetfilms: A Look at Bus Rapid Transit in L.A.


Nick Whitaker files this first in a series of Streetfilms on transportation for Streetsblog Los Angeles. Here, we hear from LA City Council Member Wendy Greuel, Director of LA County Regional Transit Planning Rex Gephardt, and Executive Director of the Transit Coalition, Bart Reed, on how the city's burgeoning Bus Rapid Transit system can be a stepping stone to expanding future transportation choices.

Don't forget Tuesday's BRT event at the Bronx Botanical Garden, where DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan will be joined by international experts in discussing the benefits of Bus Rapid Transit throughout the boroughs.
