LA’s First Street Film: Looking at BRT

Last month Street Films’ Nicholas Whitaker visited Los Angeles for a series of shoots that would lead to the first "Street Films" Series for Los Angeles.  The first of these films is finished and looks at how Bus Rapid Transit has grown in Los Angeles and how it should evolve into light rail eventually. 

Expect to see some familar faces.   Council member Wendy Greuel, the Director of L.A.’s County Regional Transit Planning, Rex Gephardt, and Executive Director of the Transit Coalition, Bart Reed all appear.

Expect future Street Films on the Eco-Village, pedestrian rights, and transportation planning in Los Angeles.
