We asked readers last week if they believe that Congress and President Obama will one day approve of the 30/10 Initiative, the effort to accelerate the building of Measure R transit projects in Los Angeles County. I have to say I’m a little surprised by the answer so far, with [continue reading]
Thursday is “Dump the Pump Day,” with motorists encouraged to take mass transit once a week as a way or join a carpool or vanpool to save some coin and do something nice for the air. Sounds good. Of course, it would also be good if there were more mass [continue reading]
A couple of weeks ago we asked Source readers if they had any interest in a different fare structure for Metro. As I wrote at the time, there is no proposal at this time to change Metro’s fare structure, but given concerns and/or questions over the July 1 fare increase, [continue reading]
Not to be a nag but…I’d still like to see more responses to the fare structure poll that we recently posted. Why? Although there’s no proposals on changing the fare structure currently on the table, it couldn’t hurt for agency staffers to have this kind of information in case the [continue reading]
