Hopscotch: Los Angeles’ In-Vehicle Opera

File under: only in L.A. Hopscotch, the opera, took place in 24 coordinated vehicles on the move through the city.

“You’re invited into a car not knowing the destination. The car starts moving and suddenly you’re drawn into the story with singers and musicians that are in the car with you. And as they drive through the city, activity will be happening all around you.”

L Train Closure: CityLab Coverage

The NYU Rudin Center’s report “L Train Closure and Mitigation,” was covered in CityLab last week.

“MTA and city leaders had better get a game plan in place, according to the report’s authors. They suggest some obvious steps, such as bolstering subway service on other lines, ramping up the frequency of ferry connections, and adding high-speed bus service over the Williamsburg Bridge during peak hours. Increasing car-share options and creating partnerships with the likes of Uber and Lyft should also be on the table.

And, as the authors point out, the L train closure might also be an opportunity to pursue some outside-the-box transit improvements, like a scooter share system modeled after San Francisco’s and even a high-speed gondola.”
