When & Where
Angelenos Against Gridlock
Angelenos Against Gridlock is an advocate for a world-class transportation system for Los Angeles County, the most populous county in America. We believe Angelenos deserve a world class transportation system, with a fully built out subway/light rail network, bike safety improvements, far more frequent Metrolink commuter rail service, timely fixes to gridlocked freeways and roads, and other solutions already seen in other cities around the world.
