Community Partners – Investing in Place

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.
