Join GOOD For "Moving Beyond Cars" In Los Angeles
("Our goal is to make this a completely car-free party. Board a bus, take the train, ride a bike, map out a walk, jump on your scooter, hire a horse and buggy, break out your hoverboard ... just get here in a way that illustrates an L.A. that's not auto-dependent. Connect with friends and travel together. Document your trip on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook using the tag #LAbeyondcars. When you get to the event, we'll have an opportunity for everyone to record how they got there, where they came from, and what happened during their journey. Plus: There will be prizes awarded for the people who arrive in the most unique, alternative, or "beyond car" ways.")
