LA Metro Deploys 300 Transit Ambassadors

After its board approved a pilot transit ambassador program in 2021, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority deployed 300 transit ambassadors on its trains and buses this week. The program is part of an effort to increase alternatives to policing in the transit system following widespread protests against racism and police violence after George Floyd was murdered by Minneapolis police in 2020. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles City Council voted to extend the LAPD’s contract with the transit agency (see next section).

LA City Council Approves LAPD Contract Extension With Metro

The Los Angeles City Council voted 10-2 last week to extend the Los Angeles Police Department’s contract to patrol Metro’s buses and trains.

The sole dissenting votes were Council members Eunisses Hernandez and Hugo Soto-Martinez, who advocated for Metro funding outreach workers, unarmed response teams and life affirming support systems.

LA Seeks To Curb Street Racing In Angeleno Heights

Following protests organized by Streets Are For Everyone in Angeleno Heights, the city of Los Angeles is working to implement changes that would deter street racing in the area before the release of “Fast and The Furious X” on May 19.

LA City Council Passes Motioned Aimed At Ending Spot Street Widening

The Los Angeles City Council passed a motion introduced by Councilmembers Nithya Raman and Bob Blumenfield – and former Councilmember Mike Bonin – to reform the city’s spot street widening program. BikeLA joined several other organizations last. month voicing our support for the motion, which was introduced by Councilmembers Nithya Raman and Bob Blumenfield, along with former Councilmember Mike Bonin.

As many of you already know, wider roads make the city more dangerous, polluted, congested, and costly to maintain. Requiring developers to spot widen roads also contributes to our housing crisis by adding up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to the cost of a housing development. It also often converts greenery to impermeable asphalt.

Spot widening also creates streets designed for drivers, not pedestrians, with crossing distances lengthened, causing streets to be more dangerous and confusing to walk along and across.

Finally, spot widening leads to poorly designed, incoherent streets. The city’s streetscape should be intentionally planned block by block and neighborhood by neighborhood, not parcel by parcel with no vision other than widening. Ending spot widening will lead to a better designed city that works better for all who use it.

Charging crystals is a way of chakra crystals energetically cleansing and revitalizing them. Crystals have been used for their healing properties for many years, and many believe they can absorb and store energy from their surroundings.
