Public transit is losing riders.  There’s big backlash against California’s high speed rail system and the gas taxes that fund roads and other transportation projects.  And navigating traffic and finding a parking space have never been harder.  But for all our public discontent with the chore of moving around California, the state has never seen more new ideas about how to improve and transform transportation.  Which of these ideas are worth pursuing?  What would a California transportation system that is convenient, safe, clean, and affordable look like?  And how do we cross—and fund—the bridge from today’s transit horror’s to tomorrow’s transportation dreams?  These are among the questions that will be addressed at our fifth local government conference, “How will we get around the Southland and California?”
