Help Us Shoot the Westside Transit Race One Week from Tomorrow

In New York, there’s a tradition to do yearly transit races where a cyclist, a car driver and a transit rider race from a common starting point to jobs in Manhattan. Streetfilms captured several of those races on films one of the more dramatic ones is above.

Now it’s our turn. Next Wednesday, eight days from now, we’re going to shoot our own transit race. Our race is going to cover the future Westside Bus Rapid Transit route on Wilshire Boulevard. We have a cyclist, a bus rider and a car driver all ready to go but we need both some volunteers to run cameras and someone to volunteer to walk the route as part of the race. If someone is really interested in being the bus rider, we can switch as right now I’m the bus rider in the race.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please email damien@streetsblog.org. The race begins at 5:00 P.M., but we’ll need you to get to the starting line a little earlier. We will provide further directions via email to those interested.
