I wanted to share with you a new project being undertaken by Climate Resolve. We are thrilled to share that the Dodger Stadium gondola project is being donated to Zero Emissions Transit, a subsidiary nonprofit organization formed by Climate Resolve to advance emissions-free public transit solutions in the Los Angeles region.
Climate Resolve is a leader in the fight against climate change and helps communities most disadvantaged by climate change impacts. Our organization has developed on-the-ground climate resilience projects in Pacoima, Boyle Heights, Compton and and across the state.
We are excited to be taking over this project. It will be the next chapter in Climate Resolve’s decades long effort to fight pollution and connect communities across our region.
Before taking on this project, we looked carefully at every component of the Gondola project. It’s exactly the kind of zero-emission, community-focused transit option we need more of California. The gondola system could take up to 3,000 cars off the road before and after each Dodger game and event at the Stadium, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and enhancing pedestrian safety in some of the most environmentally impacted areas of LA. The gondola will also provide local benefits outside of game-time periods, including a Community Access Program that would allow residents and employees of businesses close to the project to ride the gondola using their LA Metro fare, at no additional cost. The gondola will operate year-round to provide community access to transit and transit access to parks, in addition to serving visitors and creating the transit link to Dodger Stadium.
We are excited to bring this zero-emission transit system to fruition. You can learn more about the LA Art Gondola project at www.laart.la.
And the next time you are at Dodger Stadium, visit the gondola cabin exhibit in Parking Lot G to learn more about the project.
Thank you for your continued interest and support for Climate Resolve. With your help we can be one step closer to making a greener, cleaner Los Angeles a reality.
