Los Angeles is on the cusp of change. With new infrastructure projects in the pipeline, what could the city's transit agencies learn from user experience (UX) research?
In 2016, Los Angeles opened a new rail line to the beach, extended the Gold Line light rail system and introduced bikeshare to five of its cities. The future looks positive, with Measure M (a recently approved half-cent sales tax) set to fund a number of large-scale rail and road projects over the next fifty years.
Pune is a major Indian city, the second largest in the western state of Maharashtra. It is a wonderful example of the vibrancy, excitement and ancient culture for which India’s cities are famous, but it suffers from all the social problems that come with the energy and color, too.
New York City is home to 8.5 million people, with the population of the wider metropolitan area at over 20 million. As New York's population continues to grow, it raises questions on how the city will cope with such vast numbers.

However, it also poses challenges for decision makers, technicians, the private sector and users.
In Latin America, where congestion levels are high and continuing to rise in its major cities, there is an opportunity to learn from European methods to help reduce and manage the problem.
