GOOD Attacks: L.A. Transportation

Join us on Saturday, December 17th at noon, in downtown LA to create a giant human infographic to attack L.A.’s traffic problem.

Currently, 81 percent of Angelenos drive to work. On average, they spend 72 hours of that drive stuck in traffic every year. It’s time to take action.

With your help, we’ll show how a small change in our commuting habits can make a big difference in L.A.’s traffic flow.

It’s easy, it’s fun, and we will be gathering at a nearby bar afterwards. For more details, check out our invite.

It’s sure to be big, visually arresting, and impactful. RSVP here by clicking join, and please feel free to extend the invite to your friends, family, and co-workers.

Don’t miss being part of L.A.’s traffic solution, and be sure to invite your friends.
