More Transit, Better Transit

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Improved transit choices like buses and light-rail are critical for mobility. In Los Angeles, we can alleviate traffic by creating more transit routes based on where people need to go, running buses and light-rail more frequently, building dedicated lanes so buses can move efficiently even in peak traffic periods, and offering real-time transit arrival information so you don’t waste time waiting for the bus. Great transit means you don’t have to drive.
