Transportation reporter at the Los Angeles Times
Laura J. Nelson's Biography
I write about transportation issues, including light-rail, buses, parking, commuting and the bike/ped community, and cover LA's county and city transportation agencies.
I've previously covered national news, business-tech and local politics. I grew up in suburban Kansas City and studied French and journalism at USC.
