A Brief History of Mid-City Transit

By Brian Myers

We asked the candidates for District 9 Monday how they would work to improve transit options for City Heights residents. Transit riders and community advocates say the neighborhood hasn’t gotten a fair shake from transportation authorities, who sliced the community in two with Interstate 15 in the 1990s.

Above, Maria Cortez of the City Heights Community Development Corporation gives us more background on City Heights’ transportation woes. She’s been working on the issue since planning for the freeway extension began in the 1980s.
