Streetfilms con subtítulos: Lessons from L.A., Looking at BRT

To view film with subtitles, click on the image and select "Spanish" of the menu on the bottom left.

David Barboza’s remarkable pro-bono run translating L.A. Streetfilms for us is at an end.  I don’t think he planned it this way, but the last Streetfilm shot in L.A. that needed subtitles, was the first one that we ever shot and the reason for the first visit to Los Angeles by the Streetfilms team.  It includes a lot of “famous” faces, including Transit Coalition E.D. Bart Reed and then City Council Transportation Committee Chair Wendy Greuel.

They liked the film so much in New York, where Streetsblog ally and transportation reform super group Transportation Alternatives was pushing for BRT projects of their own, that they actually shot an update to the film a year later focusing on the addition of the bike path.

A full list of all the L.A. Area Streetfilms can be found after the jump.  Thanks for all your help, David.
