Public Transportation

Despite soaring investments in rail expansion over the last decade, transit ridership in Los Angeles has seen a 10 percent decline. While investments in transit are making the Los Angeles region more connected, public transit expansion is also contributing to gentrification and the displacement of low-income residents.
Approximately 70 percent of people who commute by transit earn less than $25,000 a year and the average Los Angeles family spends 28 percent of its income on transportation. All communities should have an effective and affordable transit network that is safe and accessible for all means of transportation including bus, rail, walking, biking, and driving.
