There's been a more aggressive Beyond Coal movement going on in L.A. this year and this month, news comes of a Beyond Cars one. At LA Beyond Cars: A Global Perspective on Rail and Space exhibit at The Jewel Box in downtown, a party will be held on August 18th where organizers are challenging attendees to use alternative transportation.

"That's right—our goal is to make this a completely car-free party," writes GOOD Magazine, which is co-hosting the even with the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, the Coalition for Clean Air, and de LaB. "Board a bus, take the train, ride a bike, map out a walk, jump on your scooter, hire a horse and buggy, break out your hoverboard ... just get here in a way that illustrates an L.A. that's not auto-dependent."
