Making the Most of MAP-­21: Putting the Federal Transportation Law to Work in Los Angeles

Map 21

Join Transportation for America, Move LA, the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE), the Rails to Trails Conservancy, and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership:

We will be having a discussion of the new two-­year $105 billion federal transportation law, MAP-­21, and the challenges and opportunities it presents for expanding transit, investing in walkable and bikeable communities, and creating good jobs.

  • How can LA build momentum for expanding and accelerating transit investments in MAP-­21 and the next federal bill?
  • How can California and its regions maintain and increase funding for bicycle and pedestrian investments as Congress takes a fresh look?
  • What tools does MAP-­21 provide for workforce development and promote good jobs, and how can we build on this for the next round??
