Investing in Place advocates for safe and livable communities through a combination of research and ground truthing, advocacy, capacity building and partnerships.

Their winning submission “The Bus Shelter Blitz” will expedite bus bench and shelter installation in the City of Los Angeles and include community members’ input on where to locate new shelters in relevant districts. Investing in Place and Climate Resolve will analyze impacts of shade infrastructure to ease urban heat, support transit ridership, and improve quality of life for people walking and rolling on City of Los Angeles sidewalks. The project also seeks to pilot installation of at least one bus shelter with innovative features (hydration stations, solar-powered real-time arrival information, LED lighting).
