Worried about Carmageddon? Come to this conversation about high-speed rail and envision a better transportation future for L.A.!
With Carmageddon right around the corner, there's no better time to talk about Los Angeles's desperate need for better transit options. The Van Alen Institute is coming to town to showcase the winners of their competition, Life at the Speed of Rail, and they're hosting a panel at Caltrans to talk about the role of design in California's high-speed rail future. We're thrilled to sponsor this event that focuses on how high-speed rail will change L.A., from shifting the city away from car culture to creating a massive transportation hub in downtown.
