The map to the left is a bird’s eye view of Los Angeles’ transportation system, courtesy of LA/2B. Click on the image to enlarge for (truly fascinating) details.
According to LA/2B, LA is home to the following:
- 6,500 miles of public streets;
- 4,000+ miles of bus service;
- 73 miles of passenger rail service;
- 352 miles bike lanes, paths, or routes;
- 2,176 freeway lane miles; and
- 7,591 main arterial lane miles.
The map shows how UCLA is bordered by rapid, express and local bus service along with some bike lanes and routes.
With such a complicated and extensive transportation system, it’s easy to see how creating livable streets is on the minds of many Angelenos. Go to LA/2B’s blog to find out more about this map and the history of LA’s transportation system.
