Tripling the number of trips made walking, biking, and on transit by 2050 means most of LA’s streets need to look like this: pedestrian-prioritized, permeable pathways filled with seats, shade, and daylighted streams to cool and comfort those who need it most. #GreenNewDealLA

The expansive rail network, autonomous electric buses, adaptive cargo bike share, and on-demand pedicabs are just out of frame 😉

As you hear our city leaders talk about how politically difficult it will be to achieve these goals, remember that a better future is not just possible, it’s inevitable—and proof that we can do it is right here in front of us. We can and should accept nothing less.
