The Bus Bench’s LA Transit Map

February 24, 2010

For the most part, I am a fan of the Bus Bench. I was pleased that TBB commander in chief Browne Molyneux enjoyed my recommendation of The Last Bookstore in LA; her other posts often engages in over-the-top muckraking to which my response is somewhat more guarded. But the site maintains a a good guide to riding transit in LA, including a new google map to which I’ve been contributing some Long Beach entries, as well as a few in South LA and El Segundo. Despite Browne’s frequent screeds of hopelessness, I can’t help but think that deep down she’s a proud Angeleno.

In other news, the Colburn School of Music performed an interesting classical work downtown last Monday – one composed for 111 bicyclists. The piece is “Eine Brise” (“A Breeze”) by Argentine composer Mauricio Kagel. No one knows why he specified 111 bikes, or why he wrote the title of the piece in German instead of Spanish, but it was an interesting spectacle/piece of music and it’s good to see LA Times Bloggers taking note of LA’s bike culture.

    I LOVE LA.

    LA is the best city in the USA. We have the best weather, the best looking people, the most creative people and we have nice beaches. LA is as close to heaven as America is going to get…if we could just get some better public transportation options and bike lanes!!

    I’m a fan of Drew too. I’m in the middle of writing a post for all those who gave my map love.

    And thanks for all the LB entries!!

    Cheers,
    Browne
