President Joe Biden gave a speech Thursday at the developing Westwood Veterans Affairs Hospital station – part of the Purple (D Line) Extension Transit Project – promoting his administration’s efforts to expand infrastructure.
The Metro expansion project, which will add seven new stops, including UCLA, to the Purple Line, began in 2019 with local and federal funding, according to the Los Angeles Metro.
A recent UCLA study found that the injury rate for electric scooters in West Los Angeles was similar to that of motorcycles.
According to the study, published April 6, there has been little research regarding e-scooter injuries despite an increase in e-scooter usage.
UCLA recently expanded its incentives for Bruins to try varieties of public transportation for free in an effort to encourage commuting students to use sustainable transportation practices.
About 20 students and Westwood community members gathered Sunday for an urban hike through Westwood Village and UCLA.
Scott Epstein’s campaign for Los Angeles City Council District 5 organized the urban hike and featured students and community leaders discussing topics such as homelessness and transportation.
