Making LA: Traffic

Last week -- in the inaugural segment of our new ‘Making LA’ series -- we talked about LA’s built environment. This week, we talk about something near and dear to the hearts - or blood pressure - of all Angelenos: traffic and transportation. As long as people have cars, there will be traffic and congestion. But with more Metro lines being built and the advent of driverless cars and services like Uber and Lyft, transportation in LA may be in for some interesting changes.
