Imagine L.A. Beyond Traffic: Now Get Your Ideas Moving!

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |


Have you ever had a great idea for the future of LA? It's time to take it off the shelf and send it in to RailLA, a nonprofit advocating for the “timely and efficient implementation of the high-speed rail with Los Angeles’ Union Station as its hub.” Quoting from my blog post on LAist:

RailLA... is inviting anyone with a great idea to take a few minutes to write down on their site what their Los Angeles would be like without cars. Will it have centralized housing to encourage walking to work? A shopping mall by the high-speed rail hub? What about a simple one-way train ride that goes straight to LAX?
The best ideas get to see their few sentences turn into full-fledged renderings published in a book. An exhibition is also planned, says Program Director Jonathan Louie. What are you waiting for? Get crackin'! Log on here.
