L.A. officials try to lure
yuppies out of their cars
LOS ANGELES (AP) - City officials have come up with a way to
lure yuppies out of their Porsches and into buses: a luxury shuttle that
offers cushy seats, videos, wine, and bagels.
The 10-mile service from downtown to Century City is scheduled to
begin next month.
City Council member Zev Yaroslavsky, who dreamed up the deluxe
bus, hopes it will ease freeway jams by attracting lawyers and other
professionals who would rather use the time spent traveling downtown t4
catch up on business than to shift gears.
"What lawyers sell is their time," said Susan Schaefer, Century City
Bar Association president. "So if half an hour or an hour of time can be
spent working rather than dodging cars, then that's time well spent."
For $7.50 each way, the 18-passen'ger shuttles will provide cellular
phones, television, video cassette recorders and facsimile machines, said
Ralph Smith, president of APT Transportation, which won the contract
for the route.
