Car Free LA

Broadcast: 08/26/2015

The Los Angeles tourism board has launched an eco-friendly initiative designed to showcase the city’s car-free offerings. 

Kimberli Samuel talks with correspondent Tom Wilmer about Car Free LA, which offers a series of itineraries for the city’s various neighborhoods on foot, bike, and public transportation, while highlighting arts and culture, iconic attractions, historic architecture, eclectic cuisine, and endless entertainment.

Tom Wilmer produces on-air content for Issues & Ideas airing over KCBX and is producer and host of the six-time Lowell Thomas award-winning NPR podcast Journeys of Discovery with Tom Wilmer. Recorded live on-location across America and around the world, the podcasts feature the arts, culture, music, nature, history, science, wine & spirits, brewpubs, and the culinary arts--everything from baseball to exploring South Pacific atolls to interviewing the real Santa Claus in the Arctic.
