LA Named A Top 10 Transit City (Ahead Of Portland)

New, 22 comments


LA was named the ninth best city for transit, per Walk Score, but, as usual with these kind of lists, take it with a grain of salt. The site, which calculates the pedestrian-friendliness of neighborhoods and cities, looked at the transit options in American metropolises with more than half a million people (that's about 33 cities). With a score of 50 out of 100, LA beat out snobby Portland, but came out behind old-timey Baltimore, according to the site's mysterious algorithms. One thing to keep in mind: Walk Score does not take into account satellite cities, so places like Pasadena, Long Beach, Culver City, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica—all with rail and/or extensive bus service—are not included in LA's transit scores, nor in the city's Walk Score ranking.
