LA Beyond Cars and High Speed Rail

On July 29, 2010 LA Beyond Cars opened at the Jewel Box Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. The exhibition is a multi media presentation offering ideas and concepts behind High Speed rail and how it will be integrated into Los Angeles along with proposed urban landscapes of the future. Here is the link for the exhibit running through August:

The exhibit drew enthusiasts from all walks of life interested in one thing: how do we plan to move about in this congested metropolis and what are the proposals, visions and solutions being offered? This exhibit is sponsored by Rail LA so it is focusing on High Speed Rail which California will be given $2.25 billion dollars in funding by the Federal Government. Want to get from Downtown to San Francisco in 2 hours and 38 mins? Check out the website for High Speed Rail from Maps to News: More on this topic later. For now, check out some pics from the opening night and take a trip to see what your city can look like in the near future.
