Fixing LA's Traffic By Making It 'Cool' To Not Drive

William Fulton offers a roadmap for the city's new mayor to make it "cool to get around town without driving."

"But is there really anything either candidate can do to decongest Los Angeles?

Yes. The next mayor can make it cool to get around town without driving.

...Rail projects and special rapid transit buses are sexy. They're also enormously controversial, especially when they sap money from the regular bus system. But over the last 20 years, the MTA has built a solid rail transit framework, almost all of it in the city of Los Angeles. Political resistance over rail costs has driven the agency to busways that are less expensive to build but still pricey."
