Transit People

Often when I head out with the kids to explore the city, we'll run into a group wearing these fluorescent green vests. The vests show that the group is on a trip with Transit People.

Transit People is a non-profit organization created in 1999 with the mission to take kids to various destinations in Los Angeles using only public transit. I've seen groups on the Gold Line, at the Natural History Museum and the La Brea tar pits to name a few. Transit People pays for all transit and admission costs.

Transit People offer a great resource for field trip deprived students as school funds continue to shrink in Calfornia and excursions into the city are considered a luxury rather than a necessary learning experience. Learn more at
