LACTFC invites you to attend It's Time to Move LA!, a community conference to address Los Angeles County's transportation funding challenge by bringing together key constituencies to explore alternative transportation funding and implementation strategies. It ought to be clear to all - an effective transportation funding program is needed to ensure a robust and efficient transportation system in 21st century Los Angeles.

It's Time to Move LA! will set the stage for business, labor, health, environmental and community leaders to perhaps find a common agenda that can ultimately be presented to Los Angeles County leaders, agencies and, possibly, voters.
Join us in this vital dialogue.
