So, apparently L.A. use to have some kind of Subway system. At least, I’ve noticed some structures around town. Specifically on Western (south of the 10) and in the Hollywood/Los Feliz area. They look like they should be subway entrances… In my internet detective search, of trying to find out more about the old subway, I came across these folks: Get LA Moving. They f-ing blew me away.
They’ve done a TON of research, got input from community leaders, the region’s transportation engineers, planners and transit advocates. They came up with a smart informed and logical system of how the LA subway could (and should!) work. And these folks aren’t even getting paid. Get LA Moving is a grassroots citizen-led discussion. It’s not associated with or funded by any governmental or private agency.
I set them my email address. I really want to know what I can do to help. Hmmm… maybe call up some sticker places? Get the word out? It looked like there hadn’t been activity on their site in awhile. I wonder what’s going on. I just think that this country is at a perfect time to push for this. Obama’s plans, the price of gas, traffic, “going green” being so popular, bike riding up… just to name a few. I wonder if there’s any money in Obama’s stimulus for this….
