My Fantasy LA Public Transportation Map

As a born-and-raised Angeleno, and having traveled throughout the highly interconnected European cities and hubs, the idea of implementing a dense European-style public transportation system in Los Angeles has frequently fascinated me. Every time I see a map of the City of Angeles, or even think about the road layout (which I often do while sitting in traffic), I imagine how many cars could be removed from the roads with a subway, light rail, streetcar, or bus station.

Anyway, I took this semi-obsession and used Google's map making capabilities to create the following visualization of my fantasy L.A. transit world. Check it out:

My Imaginary Los Angeles Transit System

So you may know that I'm a total transport nerd :) As a child, I would spend hours reading through maps and atlases. I would memorize all the streets and freeways in our Thomas Guide.

Well, returning back from Europe, a big part of adjusting back to life in L.A. is adjusting back to life in the car. And you know, traffic sucks! So I went ahead and made my own fantasy map of how L.A.. should be. Check it out below, or see the map on Google Maps:
