The UCLA Arrowhead Symposium presents Transit in Transition, a series that will consider the current state of public transit in the United States and options for the future. The pandemic accelerated the pre-existing trend of declining ridership. Transit agencies have built fixed-route and rapid transit infrastructure to serve commercial centers and downtowns, but expanding remote work brings uncertainty to recovery of demand in these areas. The more flexible bus is the workhorse of many transit systems, including Los Angeles, and has catered to lower-income transit users. An enhanced focus on equity often brings additional resources for the bus and meeting the public’s mobility needs through alternative shared mobility options.
