  • On the KTLA Morning News (Channel 5), the news anchors discussed biking in the city and the need for bicycle lanes. One of the anchors rode his bike to work one day and they were discussing bicycling on the air.

    They’ve also had reporters take transit on television to show people how friendly and usable it is as compared to what people fear.

    I will say this about KTLA, they will discuss transit issues with at least an open mind.
