Saturday July 12th at 1 p.m. Hillary Norton of FAST (Fixing Angelenos Stuck in Traffic) will make a presentation on the mobility hub concept that it is promoting (in partnership with Famima, Bike Nation and Zipcar) to the members of Southern California Transit Advocates.

The meeting will be held at Angelus Plaza (4th floor) in downtown Los Angeles, 255 S. Hill St. (one block north of the 4th St. exit of the Pershing Square Red Line/Purple Line station). As always the event is free and open to the public.
