"Transit expansion project in Watts"

August 17, 1971


In a press conference setting, unidentified officials convey the positive outcomes of an experimental transit expansion project in Watts that was conducted in response to urban rebellions in the United States in 1967. The project was designed to improve public transportation options for residents. The officials outline the multiple phases of the project, how it impacted employment and access to health care in the area, and hopes for the continuation of the project in the future.
