  1. No coverage of Rosendahl’s motion at the T-Committee meeting tomorrow, which is expected to request removing the entire Westside from the Wilshire bus-only lanes?

    If Rosendahl is successful, the bus-only lanes will stop in mid-city, and the project will be about half as long as it was originally proposed to be. And hundreds of UCLA students and staff will get back in mixed traffic for much of their bus ride to campus, and we’ll lose federal funding to repave all of the portions of Wilshire that are taken out.
