Mobility Plan Nudges Los Angeles Towards New Transportation Modes
There's a scene in "X Men Origins: Wolverine" in which a government scientist infuses every bone in the title mutant's body with an inviolable metal called adamantium. The process is excruciating, but it leaves Wolverine with the distinct benefit of near-indestructibility. And claws.
That's kind of like what the city of Los Angeles is doing to its transportation network. With the adoption of Mobility Plan 2035 , the world's first great automobile-oriented city could become the first city to de-orient itself from the automobile. The city will not merely cease adding lane-miles; it will, in fact, take space away from personal automobiles.
