Los Angeles planned subway system and busway map, 1955

Regular price $30.00 $0.00

Not every failed Los Angeles rapid transit plan was built exclusively around subways.  This one, dating to 1955, and prepared for the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority, was based on running express buses down the region's freeways, which were then under construction.  As part of the comparison, the engineers hired by the MTA penciled out a matching rapid transit system, part of which was based on upgrading the Pacific Electric lines that were then on their last legs.
