Large and Small LA Transit Tipping Point

There was some great news today for those who are looking forward to a more livable Los Angeles. Perhaps still on a post-CicLAvia high, the mayor has decided to trump his bike share initiative with a ringing endorsement of a Measure R+.

But I don’t think that’s what I’ll remember years from now. Instead, I will remember hearing a sponsorship spot on KCRW that advertised the Helms Bakery shopping complex as just a block away from the Expo Line. That’s right, a popular shopping and eating complex on the westside of Los Angeles is advertising its location by referring to a rail line that isn’t even operational yet. Amazing.

Can you imagine what will happen when Expo actually opens? I can’t wait to find out.
