Bring back Broadway Happy Hour

Bringing Back
Broadway is pleased to support LA Streetcar Inc and we hope you’ll join
us to toast this important milestone in the Downtown Streetcar effort! 

Los Angeles
Streetcar Inc. is a non-profit coalition of downtown property owners,
civic leaders and public officials.  LASI is being modeled after
successful public-private/non-profit partnerships in Portland and
Seattle — cities that pioneered modern streetcar systems in the
Western United States.  With Dennis on board, the LASI steering
committee will convene as a board of directors, bring on additional
board members, hire technical advisors, financial consultants,
designers, contractors and an operating staff necessary to design,
build and operate a modern streetcar system.
