For years, transportation planning in most American cities has favored one, dominant mode of transportation: the car.

In Los Angeles, the city that's identified with cars more than any other, that could be changing.

Yesterday the L.A. City Council voted 12-2 to approve a sweeping transportation policy change called "Mobility Plan 2035."

L.A. City Councilmember Mike Bonin, a major supporter of the plan, joins Take Two to discuss what "Mobility Plan 2035" could mean for L.A.
