We are shaping the Future Now!

We at Los Angeles Sustainability Coalition are very excited about the upcoming transit programs and projects. California is making history with all the new projected public sector projects.

This has been one of LASC most successful year.  All the forums have been sold-out and everyone loved the new format.  We have invited Transit Executives, Government Official and Industry Leaders to open discussions, share new ideas and create new innovative solutions on how to improve Los Angeles County.  

We have invited the following list of Public Agency’s Executives:

  • Phil Washington, CEO, Metro
  • Councilman Herb Wesson, President Los Angeles City Council,

This is great way to start 2018 year with each Public Agencies sharing information about 2018.


There are less than 50 people participating in this reception. We want to provide the maximum exchange of information from all the participants. The reception will provide a relaxed atmosphere to share and open dialogue. Drinks and Appetizers will be served.  Lets bring in the Holidays exploring majors challenges, cost saving, strategies, program development, cost -efficient resources and top transit priorities.
