A cheap, clean, and convenient alternative for many people, the city's DASH buses, which operate in loops around 26 neighborhoods (including Highland Park, Los Feliz, Echo Park, the Fairfax District, and Leimert), are now running at very limited capacity due to a strike, the Los Angeles Times reports. Fifteen lines are affected by scale-back, with two Downtown lines--DASH A and B--totally out of commission for now. While the DASHes are under the aegis of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, they're operated by Veolia Transportation, an independent company. "LADOT cannot be involved in such a dispute between between Veolia Transportation and its employees," an LADOT spokesman says.
