April 10: This Date in Los Angeles Transportation History

1920:  Los Angeles enacts its first traffic ordinances restricting or prohibiting parking or left turns from 9:30am to 6:15pm in the downtown area.


1992:  Southern California Rapid Transit District unveils its “fast fill” Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling facility.

Whereas a convential “slow fill” CNG fueling facility would take seven to eight hours to fill the tanks of a bus-sized vehicle, the new equipment is capable of loading an empty bus with 16,000 standard feet of CNG in ten minutes.

More information can be found in the April, 1992 issue of Headway, the Southern California Rapid Transit District employee news magazine.
