LA's Wilshire Blvd. Bus-Only Lane Moves Forward

In an important step toward a bus-only lane on LA's busy Wilshire Blvd., the city council approved beginning an Environmental Impact Report for the project, to only minimal skepticism from the councilmember from the wealthier part of the area.

"DOT stated that estimates show a 3-5 minute delay for cars driving the entire corridor, with a corresponding 24% reduction in the time it takes for a bus to go the same length. [Councilmember Paul] Koretz ultimately moved the motion to fund the environmental study at [Committee Chair Bill] Rosendahl's suggestion."
