Transportation Policymakers Breakfast

On February 11, 2015, Investing in Place held a transportation policymakers breakfast in partnership with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) to discuss best practices for funding active transportation with county transportation sales taxes. We were joined by elected officials, staff and key partners from across Los Angeles County.

Metro Directors Mike Bonin and Hilda Solis opened the meeting with their vision for a walkable and bikeable region. Bonin encouraged policymakers to think differently about what we fund for transportation by looking beyond the commute at all trips that people make–taking kids to school, going to the doctor, to the store–and how investing in a multi-modal transportation system could strengthen communities, not just shorten commutes.
