Westside Urban Forum: Congestion Pricing on the Westside and Beyond

  • Helms Design Center @ the Helms Bakery Campus 8745 Washington Boulevard Culver City, CA, 90232 United States (map)

The Westside Urban Forum is hosting a discussion about congestion pricing on the Westside in light of new studies and developments in the Los Angeles area. SCAG, for example, released its study evaluating congestion pricing in a 4.3 square mile on the Westside, noting that it could cut down traffic jams and commute times with a $4 fee. However, this could also create a burden for blue-collar workers with lower wages who travel longer distances.

Is congestion pricing what Los Angeles needs?

The following panelists will join this discussion:


  • Kim Chistensen, Land Use Chairperson, West of Westwood Homeowners Association

  • Michael Manville, Associate Professor of Urban Planning, UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs

  • Tham Nguyen, Metro Office of Extraordinary Innovation

  • Asiyahola Sankara, Organizing & Outreach Program Manager, Act LA


  • Carter Rubin, Mobility and Climate Advocate, Natural Resources Defense Council


Available in the adjacent, interior parking garage at 8711 Washington Blvd., Culver City (look for the red banners), or ample street parking, or via the Expo Light Rail line, one block to the east of Helms Bakery.
