Get LA Moving!

I am a big fan of maps, so imagine my delight when, a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this site called Get LA Moving, which provides, in detail, a practical plan to expand LA County's Metro Rail network....with a giant map. (The map can be seen below but I encourage you to visit the site for an up-close look) Get LA Moving describes itself as:
"...a grassroots all-volunteer group of citizens who love our great region, but recognize that we must determine and implement solutions to our mobility crisis right now to improve our quality of life. The plan was devised through an open citizen-led dialogue, which continues today."
The group is led by Damien Goodmon, who many people know as the instigator in the fight over the Expo line between Downtown and Culver City. If this movement indicates anything, it's that Mr. Goodmon has done his homework and ultimately, it seems he has good intentions for the longevity of public transit in Los Angeles.

If nothing else, it's a helluva map!
