Will LA Mayor Eric Garcetti reshape the transportation landscape of the city he leads? The mayor will oversee new rail lines and complete streets initiatives during his tenure, even though many of these initiatives were ushered in by his predecessor Antonio Villaraigosa. However, while Villaraigosa was seen as a visionary, Garcetti is considered more pragmatic in his approach to addressing transportation problems. Garcetti may very well focus on reassessing the relationship between the citizens of Los Angeles and its existing infrastructure. The same could probably be said of whoever is set to lead the city’s Department of Transportation, which one pundit feels Janette Sadik-Khan, the transportation commissioner for the City of New York, would be more than capable for the job.
