EPISODE 95 – OSCAR ZARATE ON FREE PUBLIC TRANSIT IN L.A.

Oscar Zarate (@outta_papeles) schools us on unincorporated Los Angeles, the L.A. County Tenants’ Bill of Rights, fareless transit, and more. Oscar’s citations include an analysis showing that fareless transit could reduce over 60 billion in vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in L.A. County, as well as this study showing fareless transit’s effect on Metro bus and subway ridership during the pandemic.

*There are also not 90 unincorporated communities in L.A. County, but at least 124, according to this data.*
