How to get to Dodger and Angel stadiums without taking a car

Bostonians roll their eyes when asked, “What trains go to Fenway Park?” That’s because they all do. Yankee Stadium? Take the 4, B or D trains and from the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines outside the city, it’s a straight shot to the House That Ruth Built. But getting to L.A. Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball games becomes a game-within-the-game involving fighting traffic, paying for parking and then sitting in more traffic just to get home. With the famous “Freeway Series” co...

Newsom’s moratorium on the death penalty is neither right nor just

The Governor signed an executive order to impose a moratorium on the death penalty. He is appearing on national television shows to tout his decision. Some lawmakers and political pundits have applauded his action as bold and just. Make no mistake; this decision was neither right nor just. Victims who survived the calculated and horrific murder of a child, parent or spouse suffer a pain that never completely goes away. When the murderer is convicted and sentenced to death, family members often e...

Metro and congestion pricing – proceed, but carefully

Transportation economists have argued for 60 years that the only solution to systemic traffic congestion is tolling. Electronic collection now makes tolls a relevant policy option for managing pavement. The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has recently proposed implementing three types of congestion pricing in its 28 by 2028 Financial Plan: cordon pricing to enter the Los Angeles central business district (CBD), which Metro projects would produce $9.6 billion over eight ...

In Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and Boston – call them the “closed access” cities – the reason for the shortage is cle...

A monorail down the 405? Sherman Oaks residents submit their own Sepulveda Pass plan to little avail

President’s Day weekend was all it took for a Sherman Oaks engineer and architect duo to draft a mass transit concept from Van Nuys to LAX that they think gives Metro’s own proposals a run for their money. The big idea? A monorail running above the 405 freeway median — straight down the middle — that could be cheaper and easier to build while minimizing impacts on neighborhood streets from the South San Fernando Valley to the Westside. After Metro revealed its updated Sepulveda Transit Corridor ...

Eating Cheap in Paris: 8 dinners for €15 or less

Paris has a reputation for being romantic, fashionable, and as most are quick to add, expensive.
