Twelve Los Angeles residents were asked to take part in a 10-question survey on public transportation in Los Angeles. Only 11 participants completed the survey. Respondents of this survey live in a plethora of neighborhoods throughout the city, including Santa Monica, Glendale, the Pacific Palisades, Mid-City West, and Downtown LA. Below is a brief overview of the results of the survey, which was created on Survey Monkey for PPD 599, Internet Technologies and Planning. “Click Here to take survey“>

75% of the respondents have taken public transportation in Los Angeles, with Rapid Bus being the most popular form of transit for the respondents (66.7% of the respondents use/have used Rapid Bus more than any other form of Los Angeles public transportation).

100% of the respondents support the funding of greater public transportation throughout the Los Angeles region. Underground Subway and Light Rail tied for being the type of transportation to which the respondents most wish to see funding allocated. Local Bus and Rapid Bus received the most votes for receiving the least amount of funding. 90.0% of the respondents would prefer to see high-speed rail from Los Angeles to San Francisco, rather than from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

When asked which four streets in Los Angeles should have a dedicated bus lane for bus rapid transit, the respondents agreed most on Wilshire Blvd. (8 votes total). Olympic Blvd. received 6 votes, Venice Blvd. received 4 votes, and Santa Monica, Sunset, and Vermont tied with 3 votes each. When asked on a scale of 1 to 5, the importance of bikes lanes in your neighborhood, 70% of the respondents chose 5, being very important.

Regarding parking on commercial corridors in the City of Los Angeles, 63.6% of the respondents chose “metered parking from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Saturday,” as their first choice (out of five choices). 60% chose “no metered or permit parking at any time” as their last choice.

When asked which two cities Los Angeles should emulate in terms of public transportation, the majority of the respondents chose San Francisco, followed by a tie between London and Portland.
