Green Spaces, Bus Design and Radical Cars for LA

Hosted by

Groaning with traffic and people, Los Angeles is going to hell in a hand basket. Or is it? New problems bring new solutions.  We look at some of the ways the Southland is adapting to its growing density, including the makeover of public transit and the explosion of new green spaces.  Also, the LA Auto Show celebrates its centennial and gets an edge on the Motor City, and the MTA--now called Metro, wins the American Public Transportation Association's annual award for an Outstanding Public Transportation System.  Plus, a native Angeleno’s favorite building.
