on the
Conference on the Rapid Transit Q!estion
The Board of City Planning Commissioners
Tuesday, January 21st, 1930
Hearing Room of the Board of Public Works
City Hall, Los Angeles
Much discussion has taken place recently in connection with the
subject of Improved Mass Transpartation,
popularly known as Rapid

Transit. Various civic bodies and groups have been discussing it, and the Board of City Planning Commissioners, feeling that it was a subject which was, in the first instance, one involved in city planning, called this conference, at which a number of the groups and interests which would be affected by or had been giving thought to the subject, were asked to present their views andexperience. The purpose of the conference was five fold.

1. To assist the Planning Commission in making the proper
approach to the problem.

2. To bring together those who had been giving thought to the matter, ascertain their views.and experience, and make the same available to others who were interested.

3.To briefly sum up the present situation.
4. To define the various factors which enter into the problem.
5. To present to the public, through publication of the pro-
ceedings, the information and views expressed .
.It will be seen, by a perusal of the papers herein, that the problem
is exceedingly complex and covers a large field, and that much thought

and study must be given it before it canbe solved. Any solution will affect the city as a whole and must be made with that idea in mind. The first element of the problem is the question of whether anything is needed, the second is that of what is needed, the third, what will be the consequences, and the fourth, how can it be acquired and paid for. These four questions should all be answered in some manner before we proceed to achieve a solution.
