Streetcar Ads Go Up in Downtown

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.

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.
