Transportation - Public


Picture Los Angeles today, and most people summon up images of cars and freeways. But if you talk to people of a certain age who grew up in Los Angeles, and mention the words "red cars", you will hear about a time before the freeways, when a network of rail lines and electric streetcars connected L.A. If you worked at Rohr Riverside in the early days you might remember taking the red car to L.A.
