The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and Streetsblog Los Angeles are both 501c(3) non-profit organizations and cannot endorse candidates. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t interview, survey or otherwise cover the Mayoral field.
LACBC mailed surveys to all the candidates. Streetsblog interviewed each of the five major candidates on camera. Questions were provided by Streetsblog, LACBC, the Bus Riders Union, Los Angeles Walks, Southern California Transit Advocates and Occidental College’s UEPI. All of the links that you need to read and hear what the candidates said can be found after the jump.
“Foothill Transit could simply run more buses earlier [...] lines 185, 280, and 281 [...] Foothill has not implemented earlier northbound trips. Therefore you can't get to the Gold Line until 6 or 7am, making it useless for people who have to start work early.
Also, once the Citrus underpass opens up, Citrus College's lot becomes open for mass parking. At $5 a day it may seem expensive, but is reasonably priced compared to downtown Pasadena or downtown LA parking.”
