Greetings from East LA featured in mini-series for METRANS

At the conclusion of the 2018-2019 academic year, the METRANS Transportation Center released a series of articles on Greetings from East LA.  Each article was dedicated to one of the five student projects: Cesar Chavez Ave., Eastern Ave., First St., Ford Blvd., and Whittier Blvd.

Through the series, author Adylbek Abdykalikov (USC Price, International Public Policy and Management Program 2020) captured and communicated the ideas of Renaissance high school students regarding traffic safety along the East LA corridors, providing readers with insights on the students’ unique zines, maps and recommendations.

As METRANS shared, these recommendations were “crafted by the next generation of traffic planners.” We couldn’t agree more.
