From bike lanes to bike boulevards to road diets, the city's roadways could see dramatic changes.

"'Mobility hubs' offering various travel options and services, are also on the table, said Claire Bowin, a planner at the LA City Planning Department.

Contracted by LA's Community Redevelopment Agency, Deborah Murphy Urban Design + Planning designed a one story, 2,300-square- foot facility with a generous 4,800-square-foot canopy and an LED display wall with integrated photovoltaics.

The station is being funded through the Metro's 2009 call for projects and may be implemented in 2012."
