Transit Corridors Cabinet Draft Workplan Q1 & Q2, 2013

Please see attached for The City of Los Angeles Transit Corridors Cabinet's Draft Workplan for the first two quarters of 2013. This document represents the priorities and action items that the City is currently considering to make the most of Los Angeles's growing transit infrastructure. As a valued partner in the Transit Corridors initiative, we hope that you will take a moment to review the plan and to provide any suggestions or other input you may have (please send all suggestions and inquiries to mayor.transitcorridors@lacity.org). In March, the Cabinet will be presenting an updated document based on the input we receive--we ask that you provide any comments by Monday, February 18th.

This draft is an important first step in making sure that Los Angeles maximizes the benefits of our transit infrastructure for all Angelenos. We hope that you will take this first step with us and we look forward to working together to make Los Angeles more transit oriented. For more information on the Transit Corridors Initiative, and to read a white paper of recommendations by transit orientation expert Robert Cervero, please visit Mayor Villaraigosa's Transportation page.

On Friday, the Transit Corridors Cabinet will be participating in Move LA's 5th Annual Transportation Conversation, at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. The Cabinet will present their workplan and participate in a discussion with transit orientation experts, community leaders, and the public about the future of transit orientation in Los Angeles. Please see below for the invitation for this section of the program--which is free to the public after 1:00pm. We hope to see you there!
