Today’s submission isn’t really a cartoon, as much as an infographic. Via our friends at Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy comes this graphic from LAANE’s Jobs to Move America campaign. The handsome image clearly and simply explains how a stronger investment in transit is good for everybody in a community, not just those that take advantage of the service.

That one of the graphic artists is Colleen Corcoran, who works on a lot of livability and green transportation projects, including CicLAvia, is just a bonus, to take nothing away from the rest of the team: Rosten Woo and Tiffanie Tran.
