DASH Service Change
Earlier this year, the LA Fashion District BID joined a small working group organized by the Central City Association (CCA) to put together a proposal for improved DASH service in Downtown. The DASH provides frequent and inexpensive bus service throughout Downtown and the City of Los Angeles. The group has been asking the City's Department of Transportation (LADOT) for later evening and nighttime service and new or extended routes.
Group members testified at a hearing on Monday about the recommendations for Downtown. We believe the LADOT recommendations must go further to addressing the needs of the entire Downtown community through new routes and even longer hours.
CCA's working group will be meeting with LADOT to discuss the proposal early next month.
