Timeline of the month: History of Transit in Los Angeles

11th Feb 2013 | Tasha G

This month we've got a real treat for all the transport buffs out there: our timeline of the month is the Metro Transportation Library and Archive's History of Transit in Los Angeles.

The topic may be a bit surprising. After all, the car and Los Angeles go hand-in-hand, right? Well, it seems that this wasn't always the case. This timeline details the very rich and complex history of public transit in LA, starting off with trains in the 1870s right up to the modern bus and metro system. And if you're interested in finding out a bit more about the very complicated development and relationships of LA's transit agencies, you can check out this graph on our sister software.

In addition to the fascinating content, the timeline itself is very nicely constructed. The background image and other original images really tie it together and add depth.

That's it for this month! If you know of or have a timeline you think is feature-worthy, get in touch with us at blog@tiki-toki.com.

Thanks for reading, and enjoy exploring the timeline!
