UCLA Law and UC Berkeley Law have announced an upcoming symposium they will hold on Friday, November 2, 2012 from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in Los Angeles on the subject "Saving Public Transit." The announcement describes the symposium thus:
"Public transit in California and the nation-including the shuttles, buses, and passenger rail that serve our communities-has been battered by recession and dwindling public sector budgets. At the same time, ridership in many areas has spiked. This conference will highlight the challenges facing transit and explore solutions to overcome them and develop a world-class transit system. Art Leahy, Chief Executive Officer of the Los Angeles Metro, will be the keynote speaker."
