Investing in Place is requesting a $5,000 Dispatch Grant to fund activities and materials supporting our mobility advocacy summit - The Tripping Point 2.
Investing in Place believes that transit is only as good as the access that individuals have to it. For that reason, Investing in Place is seeking to direct local transportation dollars in the city of Los Angeles to repairing broken and buckled sidewalks, installing new painted crosswalks and bus shelters, and addressing the lack of shade trees along the city’s streets. The present state of the city’s pedestrian environment is a barrier to walking and biking, and it also inhibits mobility for differently-abled individuals. Addressing these conditions will improve the transit riding experience by improving access to local bus and rail transit and increasing the ability of the differently-abled to make use of fixed-route transit service.
Institutionalizing Creative First/Last Mile Interventions
$75,000 granted to LA-Más to push LA-region agencies to streamline the implementation of creative first/last mile interventions at transit stations and stops and to combat rising pedestrian deaths and sinking transit ridership in the second most populous region in the nation.
Community Inspired Urbanism for First/Last Mile Strategies
$147,850 for first/last mile and transportation demand interventions at the LA Metro Gold Line Lincoln Heights/Cypress Park Station and surrounding neighborhoods.
What do voters want from transit, and can agencies deliver it?
$144,701 for survey research examining motivations of Los Angeles residents and transit riders who support transportation funding measures.
