Greuel: Fixing Transportation In LA

Councilmember Wendy Greuel says that getting L.A. moving requires doing small fixes now and planning for big projects in the future.

Councilmember Wendy Greuel represents Council District 2 in the City of Los Angeles, stretching from Sunland-Tujunga, through the heart of the Valley, to the 101/405 interchange. As the custodian of such a vast swath of L.A. real estate, she knows firsthand the challenges facing the city’s commuting public, and as chair of the City Council’s Transportation Committee, Councilmember Greuel is helping to lead the city’s efforts to combat traffic and increase mobility.

Solutions to L.A.’s traffic problems are not limited to grand subway plans, freeway expansion, or even the highly successful Orange Line busway. They also depend on small short-term fixes such as synchronizing traffic lights and limiting construction crews’ work hours. Metro Investment report presents an exclusive interview with Councilwoman Greuel in which she explains her and the city’s long- and short-term strategies for improving mobility.
