What: East Los Angeles residents join Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria

art where bus commuters can comfortably rest on a hot summer or cold
winter day while waiting for the bus. Staging areas, commuter seating, and
operator restroom facilities highlight the bus layover site.
Surrounding to the Bus layover facility is a concrete block fence that features
a community painted mural of leaves found in East L.A. neighborhoods.
Others joining Molina at the dedication include; officials from County of Los
Angeles Department of Public works, Metro, the LA County Art Commission
and members of the community.
