To transform LA from the city of smog and congestion into a oasis of mobility and open space for all of its citizens and the surrounding communities.
This could include:
1. Adding Metro.net schedule data onto Google Transit, even if it means formatting it ourselves and building a front end.
2. Seriously looking at Challenge #2 and coming up with a solution that will work in LA.
3. You name it... LA could probably use it.

Cityleft has worked together with Travelsharing.netsons.org to develop an open source website for car pooling.
Carpooling (also known as car-sharing, ride-sharing, lift-sharing and covoiturage), is the shared use of a car by the driver and one or more passengers, usually for commuting (Wikipedia).
However Travelsharing.netsons.org extended this approach to other forms of mobility such as biking, hiking, and so on.
The website is still at its beta version. Users should join to the community in order to translate contents in local languages.
