Price Presents: Mending Metro
August 17 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM| FREE
With traffic continuing to snarl Los Angeles County’s freeways and an urgent need to reduce auto emissions to curb climate change, the need for public transportation has never been more urgent. But a recent sharp increase in crimes on our local train system has made riders more reluctant than ever to ride the rails.
Is there a fix? Join us for an in-depth discussion about how to mend our metro system so that it can realize its promise to provide affordable, efficient and low-emission transportation.
