Mass Transit Advocates Action: 100 foot banner drop over 405 Freeway

by A Tuesday, Mar. 17, 2009 at 5:50 PM

A group of mass transit activists calling themselves, West LA for Change, hung a 100 foot banner over the 405 freeway on Friday to advocate for a mass transit rail system for the Los Angeles area. Motorists struck in traffic responded positively with waves and honks.

PRESS RELEASE

A creative group of transit activists staged theatrical performance on the Palms overpass of the 405 freeway for a captive audience of drivers stuck in traffic last Friday, March 13, 2009. As passengers stuck in the usual gridlock looked on, a giant 100 foot banner was hung from the overpass, urging motorists to advocate for more public transit, and less freeways. The sign read “If we had trains, you’d be home by now!”

West LA for Change, a new grassroots organization in the area, planned the event in order to draw attention to the need for a more comprehensive public transit system in the City of Los Angeles. The group stated that this is the opening salvo of many actions planned for the near future.
