Hey Universal City! What about the LA River Trail?

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

There's all this excitement about the building a new Universal City. Condos, jobs, economy. Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's all good stuff. But there's the logistical part, and that's transportation.

Pedestrian Friendly? Check
Red Line Subway? Check.
Rapid 750 Bus Line? Check.
101/134/170? Check.
Nearby Airport? Check.
Bicycle Path? Uhhhhh...

Did we forget something yesterday? Yes, we did. The LA River runs right along the property, yet there was no mention of the LA River Trail. Now, we don't live in a fairytale land where if you build it, the cars will go away; but we do believe that if you build it, the landscape of the city will vastly change.
