Los Angles Launching First Bicycle Friendly Business District
Elizabeth Gallardo, writing for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation Bike Blog, shares new of the city's first Bicycle Friendly Business District.
"The program aims to provide districts with adequate bicycle facilities including bicycle parking and repair stations, bikeways, creating maps of the bikeway network, installing signage, and facilitating bicycle wayfinding."
The pilot will include several prominent business corridors in Northeast Los Angeles—Colorado Boulevard, York Boulevard, Eagle Rock Boulevard, and N. Figueroa Street. Each of those streets have seen a flurry of recent multi-modal mobility improvements.
"For the pilot, the LADOT Bike Program has partnered with Occidental College Urban and Environmental Policy Institute and C.I.C.L.E. to bring together community partners into a consortium that will envision and pursue amenities and events that will make Northeast LA neighborhoods more friendly to bikes through both infrastructure, business, and cultural offerings."
