Los Angeles Streetcar, Inc., the non-profit charged with bringing revitalized downtown a streetcar by 2014, has taken ad space to bring attention to the project. Ads went up this week, finds Eric Richardson at blogdowntown. "See what happens when Downtown connects," the theme states, suggesting local uses like dinner at L.A. Live followed by a show at Walt Disney Concert Hall. "The success of the Downtown Los Angeles Streetcar project depends on widespread support from community stakeholders, business leaders, property owners, and the public at large," noted a report last month. No official route has been chosen for the project yet, but possible routes do connect Bunker Hill with L.A. Live mainly via Broadway.
