On June 23, the Metro Board is expected to approve a ballot initiative that's being called Measure R2, for a half-cent sales tax to be placed on the November ballot. If LA County voters approve it, it would mean billions of dollars in more transit funds. The question is, how should it be spent? Some are worried that a disproportionate amount of money will go to freeways and light-rail, and not enough to improving bus, bike and pedestrian infrastructure. Others say this transit debate misses the point, and fails to plan for new ways of getting around, such as autonomous vehicles.
