Gold / Red Lines and Transit-Oriented Development Field Trip
Los Angeles, CA
As a part of the 2013 Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, Andrew Goetz (University of Denver) and Keith Ratner (Salem State University) organized a field trip to visit transit-oriented development along the city's gold light-rail line and red subway line. The field trip was sponsored by the Transportation Specialty Group and the Urban Specialty Group.
The tour was focused on the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) Joint Development Program, "a real property asset development and management program designed to secure the most appropriate private and/or public sector development on Metro-owned property at and adjacent to transit stations and corridors."
