NDSC Data Story: Transportation Access in the East San Gabriel Valley

Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC)

Recent expansions in transportation have done little to improve traffic flow in the East San Gabriel Valley where public transit use is just 3% – less than half of the county average. The East San Gabriel Valley is located directly to the east of Downtown Los Angeles on the eastern edge of the County. Traffic in the area is especially congested as morning and evening commuters from three separate counties, including Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino, travel through the region daily to get in and out of the Los Angeles. East San Gabriel Valley’s limited public transit system, coupled with excessive traffic congestion in the area, make residents particularly vulnerable to the consequences of inadequate transportation options.
