    It's not just a matter of drivers' choices, public transportation should be better constructed as well. I hate driving, even if there's no traffic. But it takes me 2 hours to get to Santa Monica by bus, and 1 hour by car with horrible traffic. Then I will still go with driving to get that extra 1 hour of sleep.

      That's exactly why I ride a motorcycle. I still can get anywhere in LA in 20 minutes. That used to be true for cars here, before we doubled the population. Sure, it's risky, and scary as hell at first, but the more of us who ride, the safer it will be. Having gotten into bicycling decades after motorcycling, I can assure anyone that if they can ride a bicycle in this city, they can easily ride a motorcycle or scooter.

    how many people in the flash mob used the metro to get to the filming location? how much of good's staff actually bike or bus as their main transport? it's this kind of "not my responsibility" rhetoric that makes your information completely useless outside the choir.

      me and my friends rode our bicycles there. Although I could've walked, as it was close to home. Ask the LA County Bike Coalition for those stats. I was just talking to one of their people who told me they'd recently conducted a Ride to Work training session for employees of Warner Bros who want to ride to work WB is a much bigger media organization than this one, so it's great to see large companies getting on board. Small companies need to focus on getting the message out to the rest of the world.

    What a great way to present this information!

    We hope to see more of this innovative messaging in the future!

    I hate hate hate traffic. I'm a former New Yorker, used to hopping on trains to get around town. If I could do that here in LA, I could use my train-commute to catch up on reading, listening to the podcasts and music, finish up details on a work presentation (thank you, smartphones!), I could text legally in motion, and overall -- I'd be so much happier when I got to my destination. With the upcoming Carmeggedon Part 2, it's interesting how much this event conjures thoughts of communities doing without highway driving for a change and how people will choose to spend the weekend without the 405 interchange. It's time better spent with family, friends, their kids, having a bbq, picnic, going out 'walking' around town... just like what we used to do in New York on the weekends!

    I'm reflecting on when we did this about a half-year ago now. I'm wondering how more of these can happen but on a smaller scale. How could data influence street performances or even local events (ex. people who go to a festival get a color wristband if they did bike valet, car valet, or took the bus/metro).
