"Traffic on Los Angeles streets and freeways has increased since the transit strike began 10 days ago, according to transportation records, significantly worsening congestion and delays throughout the city...A report by the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, which sampled 11 major intersections and freeway ramps for three days last week, found a 4.4% jump in traffic volume overall...Before the strike, transit trips accounted for at least 5% of all travel within Los Angeles County, according to MTA's latest estimates. On an average weekday, Angelenos took 580,000 trips by bus and 100,000 trips by rail."
